Flooding leaves major damage
State Sen. Becky Duncan Massey, who is also the chair for the Senate transportation committee said Friday the recent flooding to Tennessee’s interstates and highways impacted more than 70 counties and left damage totaling more than $70 million. She said that is double the cost of the record flooding Nashville saw in 2012. Massey said the Tennessee Department of Transportation will see a majority of the damage, about $65 million, reimbursed by the federal government, through FEMA. She says crews are beginning work on major problem areas. East Tennessee TDOT spokesperson Mark Nagi said Friday that crews are in the beginning stages of some resurfacing projects and bridge repairs.
