State Route 6, also known as Columbia Pike, Highway 31 and Main Street in Spring Hill, has been identified by the Tennessee Department of Transportation as an area that needs to be addressed due to the continuing population expansion in Middle Tennessee. TDOT has come up with concept plans for the widening of Hwy 31 to 4 lanes starting in Franklin and extending south through Thompson's Station and into Spring Hill. (See the vicinity map for location info.)
This is a State of Tennessee Department of Transportation project and this page will be updated as information is provided. The project is currently in the preliminary planning phases with construction not expected to start for another 3-5 years.
Thompson's Station is located in TDOT Region 3, District 37. TDOT personnel representing that area are listed below:
|Director of Operations:|
|Director/Assistant Chief Engineer:|
David Layhew, P.E.
|Director of Project Development:|
