Franklin W. Oakwood Road Improvements

GRAEF designed and prepared  plans and specifications for road improvements on West Oakwood Road, from 27th Street approximately 4,000 feet west. During the planning stage, GRAEF prepared several alternative road layouts and probable cost estimates.  Our firm designed improvements for West Oakwood Road as part of Phase I of the City of Franklin’s future business park. The road and utility improvements were initially spurred by the construction of a large healthcare facility on the northwest corner of West Oakwood Road.

A 120-foot right-of-way replaced the previous 22-foot wide rural section of roadway. A 48-foot boulevard with sidewalks and bike paths will be constructed in the near future. As part of this project, GRAEF prepared right-of-way plats and performed a natural resource study, survey, street lighting plan, landscape plan, stormwater management plan, road plans and cross sections, traffic signal plan, traffic control plan, water main design, sanitary and storm sewer design, assessment reports, wetland and waterway permitting, bidding, contract administration, and construction inspection.

Due to the extent of wetlands and woodlands within the  site, GRAEF worked closely with State and Federal regulatory agencies, as well as the City to streamline the Chapter 30/Section 404/401 permitting process and to design the road reconstruction and associated stormwater features in a manner that was both innovative and sensitive to natural resources.
