TDOT and Williamson County Prepare for Fair Traffic

TN.gov Transportation - Wed, 07/30/2014 - 1:46pm

Motorists Urged to Use Caution in Nearby Work Zone

FRANKLIN, Tenn. – The Tennessee Department of Transportation is gearing up for heavy traffic expected on Tennessee roadways as a result of the Williamson County Fair, which begins Friday, August 1, and runs through Saturday, August 9, at the Williamson County Agricultural Expo Park.

 

Very high traffic volumes are expected to pass through Williamson County over the next week, affecting interstate highways, state routes, and local roads near the fair venue. This area includes the interchange of I-65 and State Route 248 (Goose Creek Pike / Peytonsville Road), where a construction project is currently underway. As a result, TDOT is working closely with local officials to make sure traffic flows smoothly to and from the fairgrounds.

 

TDOT contract crews continue to work in the median of I-65, allowing traffic on the outside lanes. Additionally, traffic has been shifted on the I-65 off-ramps, preventing the use of the shoulders as lanes of travel. These changes may be unfamiliar to fairgoers who have not recently traveled the area and will likely create significant traffic delays.

 

Additional message boards will be in place to notify travelers of the proper lane of travel and for the potential for delays, while local law enforcement will direct traffic at the I-65 off-ramps and fairgrounds entrance.

 

Any motorists not attending the fair are asked to plan ahead and avoid the interchange if possible. TDOT also asks drivers to use caution, reduce their speed and be alert to changing traffic conditions in work zones across the state.

Department of Safety & Homeland Security Seeks Reaccreditation

TN.gov Safety - Mon, 07/28/2014 - 5:13pm

NASHVILLE –- Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security Commissioner Bill Gibbons announced Monday that the department is seeking reaccreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA).  A team of assessors will arrive next month to examine all aspects of the department and the Tennessee Highway Patrol including the department’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services.

The assessors will determine if the department and the patrol meet CALEA’s high standards for law enforcement agencies.  The assessment is part of a voluntary process to gain accreditation and is a highly regarded recognition of public safety professional excellence.

As part of the on-site assessment, department personnel and members of the community may offer comments by phone to the assessors. Those wishing to comment may do so from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. CDT on August 11 by calling 615-251-6321.

Phone comments are limited to 10 minutes and must address the department’s ability to comply with CALEA standards. A copy of the standards is available upon request at each of the eight THP district headquarters.  The locations and phone numbers for each district office are available on the department’s web site at www.tn.gov/safety/thp.shtml.

Persons wishing to offer written comments about the ability of the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security and the Tennessee Highway Patrol to meet the standards for accreditation are requested to send those to the following address: Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement, Inc. (CALEA), 13575 Heathcote Blvd., Suite 320, Gainesville, VA 20155–6660. Comments may also be submitted by email to calea@calea.org.

The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security and the Tennessee Highway Patrol must comply with the applicable 475 CALEA standards to gain accredited status.

Major Betty Blair serves as the CALEA program manager for the department and the patrol. Blair says the assessment team is composed of public safety practitioners from similar but out-of-state agencies.  The assessors will review written materials, interview individuals, and visit offices and other locations where compliance can be witnessed. The assessors include Colonel (Retired) Tim Hazlette of the Kentucky State Police and Lieutenant Marianne Daly of the Connecticut State Police.

After the CALEA assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back to the full commission, which will then decide if the agency is to be granted accredited status, Blair stated.

Accreditation is for three years, during which time the agency must submit annual reports attesting continued compliance with those standards under which it was initially accredited.

For more information regarding the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. please write the Commission at 13575 Heathcote Blvd. Suite 320, Gainesville, Virginia 20155 – 6660 or by email calea@calea.org.

Haslam Announces More Than $1.3 Million In TDOT, TDEC Grants for Greene County

TN.gov Transportation - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 1:52pm

Grants will make downtown Greeneville and Walters State more pedestrian friendly, improve energy efficiency in Greeneville’s Municipal Solid Waste Division, and convert EastView pool into a splash pad
 
GREENEVILLE – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam today announced more than $1.3 million in grants to make downtown Greeneville and Walters State more pedestrian friendly, to improve energy efficiency in Greeneville’s Municipal Solid Waste Division with the purchase of a hybrid-automated garbage truck, and to convert the EastView pool into a splash pad.
 
“These types of projects strengthen our communities,” Haslam said. “Increasing energy efficiencies saves taxpayer dollars. Making our cities and towns more pedestrian friendly and improving our recreation areas improves the lives of Tennesseans. We want Tennessee to continue to be the very best place to live, work and raise a family, and projects like these are key to making that a reality.”


 
A $1 million transportation alternative grant from the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) will fund phase I of the Walters State Community College Pedestrian Facilities Project located in downtown Greeneville near the intersection of N. Main Street and Tusculum Boulevard. Walkways will connect the Monumental entrance, Main Street entrance, the campus amphitheater, the Greeneville Historical Walkway, and sidewalks outside the campus.
 
The transportation alternative grant is made possible through a federally funded program formerly known as transportation enhancement and is administered by TDOT. A variety of activities, such as the restoration of historic facilities, bike and pedestrian trails, landscaping and other non-traditional transportation projects are eligible for grant funds under the federal program.
 
“Through these grants, TDOT has funded more than $306 million in non-traditional transportation projects,” TDOT Commissioner John Schroer said. “This program has assisted communities all over the state in their efforts to revitalize downtowns, highlight historic areas, provide alternative means of transportation, and increase opportunities for economic development.”
 
A $197,000 Clean Energy Grant from Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) will be used to purchase an Autocar E3 Hybrid-automated garbage truck for Greeneville’s Municipal Solid Waste Division, replacing the conventional transmission to utilize hydraulic pressure to propel the truck and potentially saving Greeneville 2,908 gallons of fuel or $8,957 annually.
 
A $125,000 Local Park and Recreation Fund grant from TDEC to the town of Greeneville will go toward replacing the EastView pool with a new, state-of-the-art splash pad with numerous water features.
 
“From land acquisitions for new municipal parks to renovating and improving existing facilities, these grants help expand recreational opportunities for Tennessee citizens,” TDEC Commissioner Bob Martineau said. “We are always looking for ways to promote environmental awareness and energy efficiency, and these investments in our local communities help improve the quality of life for all Tennesseans.”
 
Clean Tennessee Energy Grants were established by the Haslam administration in 2012 to fund energy efficiency projects for local governments and municipalities, utilities, and other private and public organizations across Tennessee. These grants support projects designed to reduce air emissions, improve energy efficiency and create cost savings.
 
The Local Park and Recreation Fund is a 23-year-old state program that provides local governments with resources to support development and improvements to local parks, greenways, trails and recreational facilities. Grant recipients were selected through competitive scoring with careful consideration given to the projects that met the selection criteria and expressed the greatest local recreation need. All LPRF grants require a 50 percent match by the recipient.
 
Sen. Steve Southerland (R-Morristown), Rep. Jeremy Faison (R-Cosby), and Rep. David Hawk (R-Greeneville) represent Greene County in the Tennessee General Assembly.
 
 

Haslam Announces TDOT, TDEC Grants For Decatur County

TN.gov Transportation - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 4:35pm

$750,000 in Grants Will Fund Improvements to Downtown Parsons and Riding Arena at Decatur County Fairgrounds


PARSONS – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam today announced two grants totaling almost $750,000 to fund phase IV of the Downtown Improvement Project in Parsons and the Riding Arena Renovation Project at the Decatur County Fairgrounds.


“We want Tennessee to continue to be the very best place to live, work and raise a family, and projects like these are key to making that a reality,” Haslam said. “Making downtown areas more inviting and accessible and providing opportunities for recreation and enjoying outdoor activities enhances the lives of Tennesseans and helps us attract visitors to our state.”


A $496,656 transportation alternative grant from the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) will fund phase IV of the Downtown Improvement Project in Parsons, focusing on the area leading into downtown from the west on SR 412. Existing sidewalks in a two block area will be replaced, new trees and landscaping will be installed, and decorative pedestrian lighting will be added along the project area.


The transportation alternative grant is made possible through a federally funded program formerly known as transportation enhancement and is administered by TDOT. A variety of activities, such as the restoration of historic facilities, bike and pedestrian trails, landscaping and other non-traditional transportation projects are eligible for grant funds under the federal program.


“Through these grants, TDOT has funded more than $306 million in non-traditional transportation projects,” TDOT Commissioner John Schroer said. “This program has assisted communities all over the state in their efforts to revitalize downtowns, highlight historic areas, provide alternative means of transportation, and increase opportunities for economic development.”


A $250,000 Local Park and Recreation Fund grant will be used for a Riding Arena Renovation Project at the Decatur County Fairgrounds. The current arena does not have a roof and is open. These funds will provide a covered riding arena.


“From land acquisitions for new municipal parks, to renovating and improving existing facilities, LPRF grants help expand recreational opportunities for Tennessee citizens,” TDEC Commissioner Bob Martineau said. “We are excited to work with Decatur County on this arena project, and we know it will be a popular asset for the community.”


The LPRF is a 23-year old state program that provides local governments with resources to support development and improvements to local parks, greenways, trails and recreational facilities. Grant recipients were selected through competitive scoring with careful consideration given to the projects that met the selection criteria and expressed the greatest local recreation need. All LPRF grants require a 50 percent match by the recipient.


Sen. Dolores Gresham (R-Somerville) and Rep. Steve McDaniel (R-Parkers Crossroads) represent Decatur County in the Tennessee General Assembly.

Haslam Announces TDOT, TDEC Grants for Hardin County

TN.gov Transportation - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 1:47pm

 


Three grants totaling $585,517 will fund phase II of the Pedestrian Sidewalk Project in Savannah, improve the Hank DeBerry Complex, and make Savannah’s City Hall more energy efficient
 
SAVANNAH – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam today announced three grants totaling $585,517 to fund phase II of the Pedestrian Sidewalk Project in Savannah, improve the Hank DeBerry Complex, and make Savannah’s City Hall more energy efficient.
 
“These types of projects strengthen our communities,” Haslam said. “Increasing energy efficiencies saves taxpayer dollars. Making our cities and towns more pedestrian friendly and improving our recreation areas improves the lives of Tennesseans. We want Tennessee to continue to be the very best place to live, work and raise a family, and projects like these are key to making that a reality.”


 
A $243,913 transportation alternative grant from the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) will fund phase II of the Pedestrian Sidewalk Project in Savannah, including construction of sidewalks on the east side of Tennessee Street from the southwest corner of the new Tennessee Street Park to Main Street. Sidewalks will also be installed along the north side of Main Street from the downtown district to Hogohegee Drive, which will connect the historic Cherry Street Mansion and the Tennessee River Overlook.
 
The transportation alternative grant is made possible through a federally funded program formerly known as transportation enhancement and is administered by TDOT. A variety of activities, such as the restoration of historic facilities, bike and pedestrian trails, landscaping and other non-traditional transportation projects are eligible for grant funds under the federal program.
 
“Through these grants, TDOT has funded more than $306 million in non-traditional transportation projects,” TDOT Commissioner John Schroer said. “This program has assisted communities all over the state in their efforts to revitalize downtowns, highlight historic areas, provide alternative means of transportation, and increase opportunities for economic development.”
 
A $250,000 Local Park and Recreation Fund grant from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) for Hardin County and the city of Savannah will be used at the Hank DeBerry Complex to remove existing poles and fixtures at the ball fields and make upgrades to underground wiring and electrical panels to accommodate new energy efficient lights.
 
A $91,604 Clean Energy Grant from TDEC will be used to make Savannah’s City Hall more energy efficient by installing energy efficient ceiling lights, replacing 10 HVAC units with an energy efficiency of SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) 13, reconstructing a 4,600 square foot section of flat roof with energy saving materials to reduce energy consumption for heating and cooling purposes, and constructing vestibules at the main three entrances to City Hall. The total estimated annual energy usage reduction is estimated to be 27,601 kWh, which is equivalent to 19.5 metric tons of greenhouse gas reductions. The estimated yearly savings for the upgrades will be approximately $3,126.
 
“From land acquisitions for new municipal parks to renovating and improving existing facilities, these grants help expand recreational opportunities for Tennessee citizens,” TDEC Commissioner Bob Martineau said. “We are always looking for ways to promote environmental awareness and energy efficiency, and these investments in our local communities help improve the quality of life for all Tennesseans.”
 
The Local Park and Recreation Fund is a 23-year-old state program that provides local governments with resources to support development and improvements to local parks, greenways, trails and recreational facilities. Grant recipients were selected through competitive scoring with careful consideration given to the projects that met the selection criteria and expressed the greatest local recreation need. All LPRF grants require a 50 percent match by the recipient.
 
Clean Tennessee Energy Grants were established by the Haslam administration in 2012 to fund energy efficiency projects for local governments and municipalities, utilities, and other private and public organizations across Tennessee. These grants support projects designed to reduce air emissions, improve energy efficiency and create cost savings.


Sen. Dolores Gresham (R-Somerville) and Rep. Vance Dennis (R-Savannah) represent Hardin County in the Tennessee General Assembly.

The improvements will greatly improve pedestrian safety and mobility, and create a gateway into Brownsville.


“This project will enhance the character of downtown Brownsville and create a more pedestrian friendly environment,” Haslam said. “Tennessee’s downtowns are the heart of our communities, and improvements like these improve our cities and towns and the quality of life for residents.”


“Through these grants, TDOT has funded more than $306 million in non-traditional transportation projects,” Schroer said. “This program has assisted communities all over the state in their efforts to revitalize downtowns, highlight historic areas, provide alternative means of transportation, and increase opportunities for economic development.”


The transportation alternative grant is made possible through a federally funded program formerly known as transportation enhancement and is administered by TDOT. A variety of activities, such as the restoration of historic facilities, bike and pedestrian trails, landscaping and other non-traditional transportation projects, are eligible for grant funds under the federal program.

Haslam Announces $1.4 Million in TDOT, TDEC Grants for Shelby County

TN.gov Transportation - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 11:15am

Grants will be used to make Walker Avenue more pedestrian friendly, enhance parks and recreation in Arlington, Collierville and Germantown, and improve energy efficiency at Shelby Co. Corrections


MEMPHIS – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam today announced five grants totaling more than $1.4 million for Shelby County to make Walker Avenue in the University District more pedestrian friendly, enhance parks and recreation opportunities in Arlington, Collierville and Germantown, and to make the Shelby County Corrections facility more energy efficient.


“These types of projects strengthen our communities,” Haslam said. “Increasing energy efficiencies saves taxpayer dollars, and making our cities more pedestrian-friendly and enhancing our parks and recreation areas improves the lives of Tennesseans. We want Tennessee to continue to be the very best place to live, work and raise a family, and projects like these are key to making that a reality.”


A $458,830 transportation alternative grant from the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) will fund new curbs and gutters at crosswalks, new sidewalks, decorative park benches, bike racks, and pedestrian lighting along Walker Avenue in the University District adjacent to the University of Memphis.


The transportation alternative grant is made possible through a federally funded program formerly known as transportation enhancement and is administered by TDOT. A variety of activities, such as the restoration of historic facilities, bike and pedestrian trails, landscaping and other non-traditional transportation projects, are eligible for grant funds under the federal program.


“Through these grants, TDOT has funded more than $306 million in non-traditional transportation projects,” TDOT Commissioner John Schroer said. “This program has assisted communities all over the state in their efforts to revitalize downtowns, highlight historic areas, provide alternative means of transportation, and increase opportunities for economic development.”


Shelby County is also receiving three Local Park and Recreation Fund (LPRF) grants and a Clean Tennessee Energy Grant from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC).
“From land acquisitions for new municipal parks to renovating and improving existing facilities, these grants help expand recreational opportunities for Tennessee citizens,” TDEC Commissioner Bob Martineau said. “We are always looking for ways to promote environmental awareness and energy efficiency, and these investments in our local communities help improve the quality of life for all Tennesseans.”


A $250,000 LPRF grant will be used to construct athletic fields at the new Forrest Street Park in Arlington.


Another $250,000 LPRF grant will be used for the Wolf River Boulevard Greenbelt Trail in Collierville. Phase I of the project will include a .58 mile trail, two pedestrian bridges, an observation deck for wildlife viewing and educational opportunities, and a small trailhead with four parking spaces and entrance signage.


A $208,000 LPRF grant will be used for a hay barn pavilion at the Bobby Lanier Farm Park in Germantown. The pavilion will offer farm-based education and also serve as an event center. 


The LPRF is a 23-year old state program that provides local governments with resources to support development and improvements to local parks, greenways, trails and recreational facilities. Grant recipients were selected through competitive scoring with careful consideration given to the projects that met the selection criteria and expressed the greatest local recreation need. All LPRF grants require a 50 percent match by the recipient.


A $250,000 Clean Tennessee Energy Grant will be used to make the Shelby County Corrections facility more energy efficient and sustainable. Shelby County will add multiple solar thermal systems on housing units to be used as the primary source for heating water instead of natural gas and an ozone laundry system to conserve on both natural gas and water. Inmates will be trained during the installation and maintenance of these products as a re-entry strategy.  The estimated long-term savings over a 20-year period for the full project is more than $1.6 million.


Clean Tennessee Energy Grants were established by the Haslam administration in 2012 to fund energy efficiency projects for local governments and municipalities, utilities, and other private and public organizations across Tennessee. These grants support projects designed to reduce air emissions, improve energy efficiency and create cost savings.


 

Governor's Highway Safety Office, Tennessee Highway Patrol Announce Increase in Seat Belt Usage

TN.gov Safety - Wed, 07/23/2014 - 10:39am

NASHVILLE --- The Governor’s Highway Safety Office (GHSO) and the Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) announced today an increase in seat belt usage with an observed usage rate of 87.7 percent statewide for the month of June.  That’s an increase from the previous usage rate of 84.6 percent. 

The seat belt survey is performed by the University of Tennessee (Knoxville) Center for Transportation Research. The survey, which is conducted in accordance with federal requirements and standards, is state mandated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

“We are extremely pleased to see this solid increase in seat belt usage in Tennessee. As fatalities have decreased, this is further proof that seat belts save lives, and that’s what we are in the business to do,” GHSO Director Poole said. “This all-time high in usage also means that our ‘Click It or Ticket’ campaign, combining education with the enforcement efforts of the Tennessee Highway Patrol and every single local law enforcement partner across the state, has been a productive partnership,” he added.

State Troopers have issued 4,666 seat belt citations during this year’s Click it or Ticket campaign, which ran from May 19 through June 1. Since January 1, 2014, THP personnel have ticketed 58,842 individuals for violation of the seat belt law.

“Since the beginning of 2012, our agency has implemented an aggressive seat belt enforcement program,” Colonel Tracy Trott said. “We’ve seen a 236 percent increase in the number of seat belt citations state troopers have issued since then. I’m thankful to the troopers who have worked so hard in this area, along with our partners at GHSO, the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police and the Tennessee Sheriffs’ Association who have helped us achieve this level of safety for our citizens,” he added.   

Colonel Trott also noted that Tennessee’s percentage of unrestrained fatalities is at a five-year low. Both the THP and the GHSO are committed to proactive enforcement and education to lower the fatality figure and continue to increase the seat belt usage rate.

“We still have room for improvement in all areas and demographics and will continue our efforts to reach even higher goals and save even more lives in Tennessee,” Director Poole said.

As of July 14, preliminary statistics indicate 476 people have died on Tennessee roadways, a decrease of 29 deaths compared to 505 fatalities at this same time in 2013. To date, 49.7 percent of the state’s fatalities have been unrestrained motorists.

A summary of the June 2014 Tennessee safety belt survey is attached.

The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security’s (www.TN.Gov/safety) mission is to ensure that our state is a safe, secure place in which to live, work and travel; enforce the law with integrity; and provide customer-focused services professionally and efficiently.
