Plan for Franklin center awaiting state OK

After nearly a decade of lobbying, planning, and delays, town officials have completed a blueprint to revitalize downtown Franklin by restoring a two-way traffic flow and beautifying the area. Contracts for the project are expected to be awarded by fall.

The final design plans are awaiting the green-light from the state Department of Transportation, according to Town Administrator Jeffrey D. Nutting, who said the town is working to minimize the effects of the anticipated two-season construction schedule.
