Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) Commissioner this week released the three-year transportation program, featuring approximately $1.5 billion in infrastructure investments for 80 individual project phases in 47 counties, as well as 15 statewide programs.
The program includes projects to expand TDOT’s Intelligent Transportation System, adding cameras and Dynamic Message Signs on I-24 over Monteagle Mountain and on I-65 north and south of Nashville.
State Transportation officials are looking at long-range plans to upgrade Interstate 24 between Clarksville and Chattanooga. T.D.O.T. is taking public comments and suggestions for improving the interstate that runs through Coffee County. A study will include Coffee, Grundy, and Rutherford Counties.
Suggestions can be submitted at T.D.O.T. comments at tn.gov. The study, which began in December, is expected to be complete by January.
