TDOT officials have delayed the bidding process for improvements along Highway 56 in DeKalb and Warren Counties.
Spokeswoman Jennifer Flynn said in a statement that bidders were concerned about potential utility issues within the original project.
Flynn said the first two phases of the project will be let out to bid by June 21. The first two phases will occur at the same time, widening nearly nine miles of roadway from just south of the Warren-DeKalb County line through East Bryant Street in Smithville.
The third project will stretch just over a mile from near State Route 287 to near the DeKalb County line in Warren County. Flynn said that project is currently still in the environmental study phase with no current schedule for completion.
