Senator Mark Norris recently advised Lakeland Mayor Scott Carmichael that the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) had advised him that construction on the I-40/Canada Road interchange is expected to start in 2012. This is approximately two years sooner than previously expected.
Both Senator Norris and Representative Ron Lollar have been instrumental in working with the City on this project. TDOT personnel have also been very effective in keeping the massive amount of paperwork moving that is necessary on a project like this.
Our appreciation to Senator Norris, Representative Lollar and TDOT personnel for their assistance in moving this project along.
