The City of Murfreesboro and the Rutherford County Government are working together to improve the downtown area. The latest plans call for construction of the much discussed Judicial Building, which will be built across the street from the Health Department. Businesses along Maple Street will soon have to move as their structures will be torn down.
County Mayor Ernest Burgess talked to News Radio WGNS about Lytle Street and how it will come off of Broad St. and take motorist to the future Judicial Center.
Mayor Burgess describes the preliminary architecture of the new 6-story Judicial building.
The current businesses located on the future construction site will be torn down in January of 2016. The current home to the Daily News Journal will also be torn down around the same time to make room for a new parking garage. The DNJ will have to move out of their building by October 1, 2015.
