General Project Overview:
The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) is creating a new long-term vision for transportation in Tennessee and public input is needed. This 25-Year Long-Range Transportation Plan provides the foundation for prioritizing transportation investments across the State. The updated plan will aid in accomplishing TDOT's mission to serve the public by providing the best multimodal transportation system in the Nation.
TDOT has a long history of planning for multimodal transportation needs within the State. TDOT's 25-Year Long-Range Transportation Plan is an important document for the Department and its many stakeholders as the Plan allows TDOT to make key long-term funding and policy decisions about transportation investments throughout Tennessee today and in the future.
A major outcome of this two-year comprehensive effort is a mid-term, 10-Year Strategic Investment Program. The intent of the 10-Year Strategic Investment Program is to capture the insights gained during the development of the 25-Year Long-Range Transportation Plan to concurrently develop a project program investment plan that is fiscally constrained that can be implemented over a 10-year horizon.
Over the course of the Plan process, an extensive public involvement program is in place to gather input from a variety of stakeholders, including the public, elected and appointed officials, and community groups located throughout the state.
