TDOT says it has pushed back the completion date for the Western Avenue project by a year.

Originally, crews were supposed to finish the project last December, but some utility issues delayed the plans. Crews had to relocate some utility lines.

TDOT says it now hopes to finish the project by the end of the year.

The project will expand State Route 62 from two lanes to four, from Schaad Road to Copper Kettle Road near I-640. Once the expansion project is complete, Western Avenue will also have a center turn lane and a sidewalk.
