HWY 31 Expansion

Support Widening Hwy 31


Support for the Widening of State Route 6 / Highway 31


Dear Tennessee Leader,

I am writing to express my strong support for the proposed widening of State Route 6 / Highway 31 in northern Maury and southern Williamson Counties (State Route 247 / Duplex Rd to Interstate 840). As a concerned resident and frequent user of this vital transportation artery, I believe that the expansion of this route is imperative for the continued prosperity and safety of our community.

Over the years, our region has experienced significant population growth and increased economic activity, leading to a surge in traffic along State Route 6 / Highway 31. This has resulted in congestion, longer commute times, and a strain on the existing infrastructure. To alleviate these challenges and promote safer, more efficient transportation, I fully endorse immediate widening.

The proposed widening would not only enhance the flow of traffic but also improve safety conditions for commuters. With the increased capacity, the risk of accidents and traffic-related incidents is likely to decrease, contributing to a safer and more reliable transportation network.

I understand that such projects come with financial considerations, but the long-term benefits far outweigh the initial costs. State Route 6 / Highway 31 is eligible to receive funding from the 2017 Improve Act along with the 2023 Transportation Modernization Act. Additionally, Spring Hill has contributed over $3.1 million through STP funds already paid to TDOT. The widened State Route 6 / Highway 31 will not only address the current issues but also accommodate future growth, ensuring the sustained prosperity of our community.

I urge the Tennessee General Assembly and the Tennessee Department of Transportation to move forward with the widening of State Route 6 / Highway 31 immediately. This project is crucial for our community’s well-being, economic vitality, and the overall quality of life for its residents.

Thank you for your attention to this matter, and I appreciate your hard work and dedication in addressing the transportation needs of our region.
