Tennessee Representative Joe Pitts talks about the need for Transportation Infrastructure

 

Tennessee Representative Joe Pitts

Tennessee State Representative - District 67Clarksville, TN – One of the more important issues facing our growing community and our state is the need to improve our transportation infrastructure.  If you drive anywhere in Clarksville-Montgomery County, at any time of day or night, you will find yourself in traffic unlike any I have witnessed during my lifetime in this community.

During my travels around our community this year, and in speaking with various groups, I have mentioned that the Tennessee General Assembly, during our legislative session that ended in April, neglected to enact a plan to improve the transportation system and create a dedicated funding stream to pay for it.  That was one of my regrets during and since the session ended.
