The Smyrna City Council voted 6-0 Monday to condemn 12 properties out of 40 needed for the Spring Road widening.
Councilman Ron Fennel did not vote since he said he had a client interest.
A total of $257,037 will be given to the owners by the city.
Last month the council agreed to pay $4.5 million to Baldwin Paving Co. for the widening between Cobb Parkway and Woodruff Drive and part of the Cumberland Boulevard approach to Spring Road.
Construction is expected to begin in January with completion by the fall.
