Peavine widening project could be on hold due to TDOT budget issues
TDOT Wednesday July 16, 2014

Officials with the Tennessee Department of Transportation say funds from the Highway Trust Fund, which makes up half of their budget, are dwindling fast. Earlier this week, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to extend funding through May, but TDOT officials say they are still preparing for the possibility of a depleted fund—and that could impact us here in Cumberland County. Officials say the widening of Peavine Road could be stalled along with the I-40 truck ramp expansion, pending funding. Officials say current construction projects will continue, as they are already funded.

Pilot Flying J. has agreed to pay a $92 million fine and acknowledge that employees cheated customers.
