Franklin to test new process for rebuilding roads




Franklin wants to try out a new way of fixing roads that costs about half as much and takes about a third the time.

Road reconstruction, like what is being done on North Main Street in Franklin, can cost more than $800,000 per mile and take several months to complete.
