“This funding will give Tennesseans in ten counties access to critical roadway safety information,” said Senator Blackburn. “I am pleased that Secretary Chao and the Department of Transportation recognized the need for increased internet capabilities in West and Middle Tennessee and promptly provided this grant.”

“This Administration is focused on infrastructure improvements and this $906 million in federal funding would improve major highways, bridges, ports, and railroads across the country to better connect our communities, enhance safety, and support economic growth,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao.

The grant will fund approximately 143 miles of fiber optic communications and deploy ITS devices on I-40 between Memphis and Nashville in Fayette County, Haywood County, Madison County, Henderson County, Carroll County, Decatur County, Benton County, Humphreys County, Hickman County, and Dickson County. The ITS devices include CCTV Cameras, dynamic message signs, road weather sensors, and connected vehicle roadside units.
