The Tennessee Department of Transportation announced a plan Monday to reduce potholes and road deterioration across Middle Tennessee roadways.
TDOT reported this year’s wet, wintery weather has been especially harsh and accelerated the pavement’s decline in several locations. TDOT’s new Enhanced Resurfacing Program will work to address those issues.
TDOT analyzed conditions and pavement data on every state route in Tennessee and determined multiple roadways will not make it through another winter. The list includes:
- I-24, Rutherford County (from Medical Center Parkway to Stones River)
- I-24, Rutherford and Bedford Counties (from east of Epps Mill to Coffee Co. line)
Most of the work will be done at night to reduce the impact on traffic.
