Franklin Road remains limited to two travel lanes as repairs continue into weekend

Meridian – Work continues on Franklin Road west of Locust Grove Road following the Thursday break of a water main, which eroded the base beneath the pavement and will likely keep the road pinched down through the Monday morning commute.

Crews continue to rebuild the road base and repair the pavement of the westbound lanes near Adkins Way, just west of the Franklin/Locust Grove intersection. Once completed, work will move to the less-damaged eastbound lanes.

Friday’s commute experienced slight backups although overall traffic appeared to be lighter as many regular Franklin commuters took alternative routes.

The City of Meridian’s Water Division is leading the repairs.
