NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Department of Transportation has released the projects for which it will accept bids next month.
The department plans to open bidding Oct. 18 on a total of 53 contracts, including 86 projects in 95 counties. TDOT will initiate resurfacing projects on several Tennessee interstate corridors and bids will also be received on a number of maintenance projects such as cable barrier repair, intersection improvements and bridge repair.
Recent federal data show dozens of Tennessee bridges are among the thousands nationwide that have advanced deterioration or are at risk of collapsing.
A Transportation Department spokeswoman says at least 25 of those bridges in Tennessee have been replaced with new structures, repaired, or either under construction for replacement or repair.
