Few Local Projects Included in TDOT Plans

Tennessee Transportation Commissioner John Schroer this week released the state's three-year transportation program, which prioritizes a number of important improvements to Tennessee's interstate system and continues funding for transit, rail, water and aviation programs. The three-year Multi-modal Work Program for 2011-2014 includes 182 transportation projects and programs, including 45 individual projects on interstates, 30 transit, water, rail & aviation initiatives, and 29 transportation programs. The local projects include construction of a bridge over the Caney Fork River in DeKalb County; right of way acquisition for State Route 52 from near Allons Road to Highway 111; and right of way acquisition for improvements to about two miles of South Jefferson Avenue in Cookeville from the I-40 interchange to Highway 111.
