Southeast Venture is pleased to announce the completion of the first phase of the Buckner Lane widening and realignment project, a key component of the overall development plan for June Lake® and a critical component for the highly anticipated I-65 interchange to open next year. The traffic shift onto the newly realigned Buckner Lane is scheduled to occur on Wednesday, April 19, marking a significant milestone in the ongoing transformation of June Lake.

This portion of the Buckner Lane realignment project is managed by Southeast Venture and constructed by BELL Construction. The improvements include widening Buckner Lane from two lanes to four lanes with a landscaped median, realigning the intersection of Buckner Lane and Thompson’s Station Road E., installing new permanent traffic signals, and improving pedestrian and bicycle access. The aim is to enhance traffic flow and increase safety in the area while accommodating increased traffic volume in preparation for the build out of June Lake and opening of the new interchange along I-65.

Don Alexander, Southeast Venture Project Manager, said, “The Buckner Lane project is a critical piece of infrastructure that will serve as a vital connection between the various components of June Lake. The realignment will greatly improve traffic flow in the area, making it safer and more efficient for drivers and pedestrians alike.”

Forthcoming road improvements include the further widening of Buckner Lane south of Buckner Road by the City of Spring Hill, the extension of Buckner Road (to be renamed June Lake Boulevard upon completion) between Buckner Lane and Lewisburg Pike, and the completion of a new I-65/June Lake Boulevard interchange. Once completed, the new interchange will provide direct access from I-65 to Spring Hill and alleviate traffic congestion along major north-south corridors throughout the area.

Over the next 20+ years, June Lake® is slated to comprise over 2,900 residential units, 3.9 million square feet of Class A office space, nearly 1.3 million square feet of retail and restaurant space and 400 hotel rooms.
