The Tennessean reported Saturday that Congress voted to give an additional $100 million to TDOT for the West Tennessee portion of Interstate 69, which will connect Canada and Mexico.
"The bill would give TDOT an extra $100 million in funding for the portion of Interstate 69 planned for West Tennessee. The new interstate, nicknamed the 'NAFTA Superhighway,' would stretch from Canada to the U.S.-Mexican border when completed."
"The House adopted the bill yesterday in a 412-8 vote. Later in the day, the Senate passed it 91-4. The measure now goes to President Bush for his signature."
