The city of Franklin will take ownership of State Road 44 starting next year so it can prepare to make repairs and improvements on the road starting in 2015.
The "Daily Journal" reports the city will own the road from State Road 44 to the I-65 exit.
Franklin board of works and city council members recently approved the agreement, and Mayor Joe McGuinness will sign the contract. The agreement will need to be approved by the state. City officials have been negotiating the deal with the state since summer, and INDOT drafted the contract.
