Highway 431 Expansion

Most everyone knows the expansion so far, but I wanted to pass this along nevertheless.
I will be interested to see what can be done with further expansion towards I-24. In conversations with our own Representative Evans, he has expressed before that more conversations are being had about that effort.
Here are some of the details (the rest of the story can be found here):
[Allan] Ellis said the widening of the road to William A. Batson Parkway is being referred to as Phase One, while Phase Two is expected to widen the road a little further south down 431.
“We know commuters are very interested in TDOT widening that road all the way down to Interstate 24, but TDOT hasn’t planned that yet. They are planning on, sometime in the future, continuing the divided four lane highway about 3-1/2 more miles to where Old Highway 431 comes into Highway 431.”
Ellis explained that there are several places where Old Highway 431 intersects with Highway 431. The one referenced is just south of the Coopertown border, near the Pebble Brook Golf Course.


  1. How about the widening of the road from I-65 to Springfield. Will that come off of Hwy 76, or Hwy 49 or are they considering the 4 lane from Goodlettsville to Springfield to cover this area?

  2. That I do not know. Have you heard anything on this?

  3. Allan wasn't exactly right. The planning and environmental study has been done for all 12 miles of the 431 project from Memorial Blvd to I-24. The final phase, which is in Davidson County, partially takes a new route and will be extremely expensive to construct because of expensive bridges and crossing high-pressure gas lines. However the first two phases are not as far off. The right of way acquisition from Memorial Blvd to the Springfield city limits is almost complete, and that project could be underway in 10 months to 2 years. The second phase from the Springfield City limits to almost the Davidson County line, has been funded for right of way acquisition in this year's budget, and that process, which is very extensive, could begin this July. If we can get these first 5+ miles moving, it will motivate them to get that final portion moving. Federal funds require them to finish the whole project once they begin... so it may take 10+ years to see that Davidson County portion finished, but it will definitely occur.

    Steve - no plans currently on the drawing board for 49 or 76... but we all know it will be needed in the future as well.
