The Governor and TDOT had a meeting at the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce discussing finding road funding solutions with our local leaders. Our exit has mentioned.
I don't have the full details yet but it appears that even though the need and want is there to improve the interchange there still is no funds available. The Buchanan Community Alliance was represented at the meeting by Shirley Hayes-Treasurer and Brenda Marlin. Thanks to both of them for going and keeping our group involved and informed of the latest developments.
I have attached the article in the DNJ for you to read.
Shirley will share more details at our next meeting and we have also asked for a copy of the presentation for further analysis.
That's it for now, enjoy the weekend....hopefully it will be a dry one.
