The Breakfast Club - Commissioner Eley
Transportation is the lifeblood of our economy, connecting businesses, communities, and people. As our state grows, so does our need for reliable and efficient transportation infrastructure.
Commissioner Eley will delve into how TDOT is addressing existing infrastructure needs and how the recently approved $3.3 billion investment will impact West Tennessee. He will talk about the 10-year plan TDOT has developed, as well as the expanded options of how we plan to build these projects.
"The Breakfast Club," designed to bring together regional leaders and stakeholders to discuss topics vital to the enhancement and development of the West Tennessee region.
