Our goal is to provide you with relevant news and insights as we strive to build relationship at a time.

I also want to emphasize how grateful I am for our clients and partners as we continue work on many great projects across Tennessee. We look forward to a strong year ahead.

That's a Wrap!

Jackson Avenue Bridge

Originally built in 1920, the ramps that connect Jackson Avenue to Gay Street in Knoxville were in dire need of repair. BELL rehabbed the historic ramps using 100-year-old brick pavers that were removed from the former structure to maintain the original visual appeal.

In January, we were awarded the design-build contract for the new I-65 Buckner Road interchange in Spring Hill, TN. The project includes the extension of Buckner Road (which will be renamed June Lake Boulevard) from Buckner Lane to Lewisburg Pike across I-65 with a diverging diamond interchange (DDI), also called a double crossover diamond interchange (DCD).
We were also selected to widen and realign the northern section of Buckner Lane that stretches through Southeast Venture's June Lake development. We’re planning to break ground in April 2021.
