A notoriously dangerous Murfreesboro road is getting another upgrade.
The city plans to add a turning lane, bicycle lane and sidewalks to a 2.1 mile stretch of Bradyville Pike, a busy, two-lane road just south of the Middle Tennessee State University campus.
The section of road getting upgrades is between Broad Street and Rutherford Boulevard.
It's good news for Andy Niemeier, who frequently jogs along Bradyville Pike.
"You just have to keep your eyes out and make sure you're paying attention to the cars in front of you. So you can't really take your eyes off the road and the cars," said Niemeier.
In 2009, the city repaved Bradyville Pike and narrowed the lanes to allow for more shoulder room for pedestrians and bikers.
"That was an interim project knowing that the long term project was intended to provide better upgrades that included side walks and things that we could not get done in the short term," explained Dana Richardson, director of the Murfreesboro Transportation Department.
