Tennessee Governor and Commissioner Release Transportation Improvement Plan for 2023-2025

NASHVILLE, TN — Tennessee Governor Bill Lee and Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) Interim Commissioner Joe Galbato release TDOT’s annual three-year transportation program, featuring just over $3.6 billion in infrastructure investments for 58 individual project phases in 34 counties across the state.

The program emphasizes the repair and replacement of bridges, with activities beginning on 34 structures in 17 counties. Nine of those bridges are on the state highway system, with the other 25 on local roads.

The comprehensive program also continues to build on the IMPROVE Act's progress, which provides for infrastructure investments in all 95 counties. This year’s program budgets dollars for 92 of the 962 projects identified in the 2017 legislation. And through the General Fund allocation to the department, three programs supporting 22 additional projects are funded in the state budget.

Construction will begin in FY 2023 on several critical transportation projects across the state:

  • Knox/Blount Counties, Relocated Alcoa Highway (SR 115/US 129)
  • Hamilton County, I-75 Interchange Modification at Hamilton Place Mall
  • Davidson County, Nolensville Pike from Old Hickory Boulevard to Mill Creek (SR 11/US 31A)
  • Trousdale County, North of SR 10 to near Cedar Bluff Road Intersection (SR 141)
  • Benton County, Camden Bypass to Tennessee River (SR 1/US 70)
  • Haywood County, SR 194 (Blue Oval City)

Besides the 2023 budgeted program, partial plans for 2024 and 2025 are included for planning. The comprehensive multimodal program contains components for rail, waterway, and aviation projects, funds statewide initiatives to improve safety, and addresses congestion through the HELP & Incident Management Programs. It also provides funding for transit agencies in all 95 counties supporting both rural and urban transit services throughout Tennessee.
