Officials with the Murfreesboro Transportation Department will be working on several road projects beginning Monday, Aug. 27, within the city limits.
Most of the projects should be completed by Friday, Aug. 31, if not sooner.
A contractor will begin paving a new section of Veterans Parkway between Barfield Road and Barfield Crescent Road until Friday during the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., which result in lane closures in that area throughout the workweek.
There will be traffic interruptions and minor delays during the paving operations.
Appropriate traffic controls will be in place as the project progresses.
An Atmos Energy bare main replacement project is also scheduled to begin. Lanes on Burton Street between North Front and Maple streets will be closed from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.
The contractor for Atmos Energy will be replacing gas lines along the south side of Burton Street. Work will begin at Front Street and will proceed in an easterly direction along the south side of Burton Street, which will be reduced to one lane. Appropriate traffic controls will be in place, including a flagman who will be directing traffic.
A section of Kings Highway between Bridge Avenue and Old Salem Road will also be closed throughout the same time period.
The contractor for Atmos Energy will be replacing gas lines along Kings Highway as well. Work will begin near Bridge Avenue and proceed in a southernly direction along the east side of Kings Highway.
There will also be heavy work activities between Villa Street and Old Salem Road.
The Transportation Department is also installing a new traffic signal at the intersection of Manchester Highway and Joe B. Jackson Parkway, which will take place Monday, Aug. 27, from 8 a.m. till 2 p.m.
The new traffic signal will be turned on and put in full operation. Drivers should expect minor traffic interruptions and partial lane closures during the installation.
In addition, an intersection improvement project is scheduled to begin near the Amazon Inc. site on Joe B. Jackson Parkway.
A city contractor will be installing traffic signal poles and constructing right turn lanes, which will result in eastbound traffic being reduced to one lane from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. throughout the week, and milling and paving work will continue as well. There will be traffic interruptions and lane closures while these improvements are being completed.
