Improvement project also includes sewer, sidewalk work

Franklin will rework construction plans for the next section of Main Street after residents complained that the first section of the roadway that was redone is now too narrow.

The street in downtown Franklin reopened in November after months of construction, and motorists have noticed the lanes they now drive on aren’t as wide as before the work started.

The city reduced the size of each lane by as much as 4 feet as a way to slow traffic in residential areas where children live and to meet state requirements, Franklin Street Commissioner Ron Collins said.
