TDOT awards contract for improvement project on SR-317/Apison Pike

The Tennessee Department of Transportation has awarded the contract for a major improvement project on SR-317/Apison Pike in Collegedale to Wright Brothers Construction for $93,100,903.71.

The 3.4-mile project will widen and improve the Apison Pike corridor from SR-321/Ooltewah-Ringgold Road to east of Layton Lane near the Collegedale Municipal Airport.

The project includes grading, drainage, construction of several new bridges and retaining walls, signals and paving. Once completed, the roadway will have five lanes with curb and gutter, sidewalks, bike lanes and greenway connections. Much of the project will be constructed on new alignment, including a large bridge that will span the railroad tracks.

Over the next several weeks, TDOT and the contractor will finalize the contract and hold a preconstruction conference before work starting. Drivers in the Collegedale area should begin to see activity on the project in early 2020.

The project is slated for completion on or before June 30, 2025.
