Road Projects Revealed
WRCB Tuesday May 16, 2017

The largest gas tax hike in Tennessee history is set to go into effect this July.
The IMPROVE Act will fund 962 road projects across Tennessee, addressing a 10.5 million dollar backlog in repairs and updates.
Officials say The IMPROVE Act cuts more than $500 million dollars in taxes each year at its full implementation, and next year, in 2018, nearly $300 million in tax cuts will be realized.
Tennessee's Transportation Coalition said more than a thousand lives were lost on Tennessee roads in 2016 and highway improvements can save lives.
Officials say highway infrastructure can do this by separating motor vehicles in time and space, limiting the angles at which vehicles can collide, reducing the likelihood and consequences of collisions.
This month TDOT released its annual three-year transportation plans.
