Sneed Road, which connects Hillsboro Road with Pasquo Road and Highway 100, is being repaved west to the Williamson County line starting this week.
The 4.5 mile route will be “milled” first to break up the deteriorated layer of asphalt, then repaved and repainted.
No capacity improvements to the road are part of this particular project.
Traffic on Sneed Road was a major point in the fight by some residents against the Stephens Valley project, which has begun homebuilding near the West end of Sneed Road, near where it passes into Davidson County. The concerns about traffic led to the decision to zone students from Stephens Valley into Fairview schools, west of the development, rather than Grassland schools to to east.
Stephens Valley will be built over a period of 20 years, with current plans to complete 792 homes by 2038.
Sneed Road currently intersects with Vaughn Road and Temple Road, which both lead north into Davidson County.
