Business owners along North Mt. Juliet Road are relieved to hear the construction stretching the length of the major thoroughfare is to be complete next Friday, and many are looking forward to the benefits of having the road widened.
Im definitely relieved that its finally opening, said Jason Gregory, general manager of The Corner Pub, located at 4136 N. Mt. Juliet Road.
Officials with the Tennessee Department of Transportation said the construction will finally be complete on Friday, May 18, after three years of work. The project began in 2009 and was budgeted at $8.9 million.
The work widens North Mt. Juliet Road to five lanes from Interstate 40 to Highway 70. TDOT Community Relations Officer Deanna Lambert said the contractor, LoJac Enterprises, has until May 25 to finish, but said everything is expected to be done a week before that date.Mt. Juliet Road should be open and all lanes drivable on Friday, May 18, barring any weather or other unforeseen delays, Lambert said. However, the contractor technically has until May 25to completely finish, so they may have to tie up some loose ends between those dates.

Organized by Wilson County Soil Conservation and Farm Bureau Women of Wilson County, local students learn from farmers about caring for animals ranging from cattle, sheep, goats, chickens and even bees.
Second graders from West Elementary School were able to pet the nose of a 4-year-old Brown Swiss cow, but only after being reassured by Diane Major, of Wilson County Soil Conservation and also a local dairy farmer, that cows dont bite.They only have four teeth on the bottom, she said.
