The state has a project under development to improve two intersections in the Bonny Oaks and Volkswagen Drive area.
TDOT's Jennifer Flynn said the project will be done through the State Industrial Access (SIA) program, which is a program that authorizes TDOT to contract with cities and counties for the development of industrial highways to provide access to industrial areas and to facilitate the development and expansion of industry within the state of Tennessee.
The project under development is for intersection improvements for Bonny Oaks Drive at Volkswagen Drive and improvements to the roundabout at Volkswagen Drive and Discovery Drive.
The project will lengthen and add additional turn lanes to the intersection and roundabout and also modify the traffic signal at Bonny Oaks Drive at Volkswagen Drive.
Right-of-way acquisition, utility relocation coordination, and water quality permit acquisition are currently underway on this project.
The proposed construction plans turn-in date is for late spring 2014, and if that schedule holds, work could begin in summer 2014.
The estimated project cost is $4.3 million.
