Monday, January 11, 2016

The official 2016 Tennessee Transportation Map is now available for travelers.

There are some new additions to the 2016 map.  State Route 222 in Haywood County is being rerouted and improved in the Mega site area.  I-269 is open to traffic in Tennessee and will be designated as an interstate when Mississippi completes their section.  There is also a new exit to access the solar panel farm off I-40 in Haywood County.

“The state map is a valuable tool for motorists, and can assist them in planning their route through Tennessee,” said TDOT Commissioner John Schroer. “The map is free and is also available at welcome centers and rest areas across the state.” 

The 2016 state map can also be downloaded from the TDOT web site at http://www.tn.gov/tdot/topic/maps-state.
