We have added new pictures of the Biggest bridge project ever to be undertaken by Murfreesboro...

The City of Murfreesboro is undertaking the construction of one of the largest bridges in Rutherford County that is not part of an interstate interchange right now. The project is between I-24 and 231 South. City Manager Rob Lyons told WGNS in January of this year that the bridge will cross over the Middle Fork of the Stones River and the railroad tracks.

Murfreesboro spokesperson Chris Shofner told WGNS in an email that City Engineer Chris Griffith confirmed the bridge is indeed the largest bridge the city has ever undertaken.

When the Joe B. Jackson extension is nearly complete, construction of a new Walmart at the intersection of South Church St. and County Farm Road should be well underway. That Walmart project is expected to get started next year.  More pictures below or click here...

Below is a picture of the Middle Fork Stones River in the center of the consrtruction zone. Caution has been used in this section as crews put down plastic tarps in the river. Water is able to flow under the rock via large pipes that have been placed in the river so heavy equiptment can be moved around as they build. 

Homes along County Farm Road, which is actually Joe B. Jackson, have little to no access to their front yard at this point and the city has purcahsed a large portion of each yard in the path of the new roadway and bridge.
