CHATTANOOGA – Tennessee Department of Transportation Commissioner John Schroer begins his statewide “TDOT Projects Tour” next week in TDOT’s Region Two, which is based in Chattanooga.
During this week-long tour, Commissioner Schroer, elected officials and transportation officials will travel by bus to view TDOT projects currently underway and those listed on the department’s “Three Year Program.”
The Region 2 Tour is the first of four tours that will be held in East, Middle, and West Tennessee. The Region 2 Tour kicks off in Cannon County on Monday, August 13, 2012 and will wind up in DeKalb County on Thursday, August 16, 2012.
The tour will arrive at the Cannon County Courthouse at 10 a.m. Monday. Officials will first visit and view the work being done on the SR-1 (U.S. 70 S) Bridge Replacement Project over Hill Creek in Woodbury.
They will then view the SR-1 (U.S. 70 S) projects being done in Warren and Cannon counties on the new four-lane highway between McMinnville and Woodbury.
“It is a priority of mine to see firsthand the investments we are making in transportation projects across the state,” said Commissioner Schroer. “These “viewing tours” will also give us the opportunity to share valuable information about these projects with our elected officials and engage the public along the way.”
