Traffic may get even worse in Spring Hill for another month-and-a-half.
The Tennessee Department of Transportation will be resurfacing U.S. Highway 31 from the Maury County line to Interstate 840.
“The project is actually two resurfacing projects grouped together,” said Kathryn Schulte, TDOT spokeswoman.
Digital signs have already been placed on the highway on both ends alerting motorists “One Lane Traffic” ahead. The one lane closures will occur 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.
Schulte said the first step is replacing an old guardrail at a bridge near the Maury County line. A new guardrail is also being installed at a culvert near Advanced Auto Parts, she said.
The entire road, from the Maury County line to 840, will be repaved as part of a $1.2 million state and federally funded project, she said. The estimated completion date for the project is May 31.
Schulte specified that the project is not a road widening, but a resurfacing.
