TDOT Needs To Check Road Spending Priorities

Thursday, July 18, 2013
Highway 41 between Guild, Tennessee and Lookout Valley, Tennessee is a real danger. There are several places where the road is falling off of the mountain and could make a driver crash it is in such disrepair. Keep in mind that when I-24 has issues between Nickajack Lake and Chattanooga that Highway 41 is the chosen alternative. TDOT had 40 million dollars to spend on an exit that may enhance the Old Wheland Foundry property, yet existing roads are falling off of the mountain just a few miles away.
TDOT needs to check their priorities and make sure that exiting roads are in repair and safe before taking on more responsibility.
