Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Tennessee Department of Transportation Commissioner John Schroer released TDOT’s annual three-year transportation program, which includes funding for nearly 200 road projects statewide.

The program features approximately $2.6 billion in infrastructure investments for 143 individual project phases on 116 projects, including highways, bridges, transit, railways, waterways and aviation projects.

“This year’s transportation plan provides for much needed infrastructure improvements and maintenance for many areas of our state,” Gov. Haslam said. “These investments result in a safe, reliable, and debt-free highway network for our citizens and are critical in our efforts to bring high quality jobs to Tennessee.”
