Developer Southeast Venture has announced the completion of the first phase of the Buckner Lane widening and realignment project. The project serves as 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 19th, 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 active area is shown in the images below. The first image provides a section of the June Lake masterplan, the gallery below it provides context of the realignment as it relates to the masterplan.
The goal of the project is to enhance traffic flow and increase safety in the area while accommodating increased traffic volume. It also is in preparation for the build out of June Lake and opening of the new interchange along I-65. Continued road improvements include:
- 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.
- 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.

“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.“
—Don Alexander, Southeast Venture Project Manager
