TDOT’s Environmental Initiatives Leave a Legacy for the Future

 

Tennessee in Motion is a monthly column by Tennessee Department of Transportation Commissioner Gerald Nicely

Tennessee Department of TransportationLast week, TDOT opened a new section of State Route 840, the highway that makes a half circle south of Nashville connecting I-40, I-65, and I-24. While the entire State Route 840 is not yet complete, this particular project is symbolic of the dramatic changes TDOT has implemented over the last several years in an effort to become better stewards of the environment. While many of those changes were focused on actual road construction, we have also seen monumental improvements in virtually every aspect of the department’s work.

The controversy over the last sections of SR 840 led to the launch of the Context Sensitive Solutions process, which forms valuable partnerships between TDOT and the citizens of Tennessee. CSS is now being used on a number of large projects across the state. The department has also strengthened its entire public involvement process to ensure our citizens are informed and educated throughout all phases of project development. The result – projects that complement communities; and include the input of residents and stakeholders, as well as adherence to environmental protection measures.
