Tennessee halts work on I-69 corridor
Tennessee officials say they’re putting a hold on their state’s segment of the proposed Interstate 69 corridor until the federal government provides more money for the project. The Tennessee Department of Transportation hasn’t made an official announcement about the delay, but TDOT spokeswoman B.J. Doughty tells the Commercial Appeal some kind of federal promise on I-69 is needed.
Tennessee, Kentucky, and the five other states I-69 will pass through want Congress to dedicate money specifically for the project. Tennessee’s segment runs from Memphis north to South Fulton. The Commonwealth’s portion runs from there northeast to Henderson.
