Tennessee’s transportation system is recognized as one of the best in the nation. In July, CNBC’s annual study, “America’s Top States for Business,” ranked the state as fourth in the country for infrastructure. Tennessee’s 96,167 miles of public roads play an essential role in driving the economy and connecting communities and families. The state is also known for its natural beauty, with 4,022 miles of public roads classified as scenic. As the Volunteer State, our unique character is built on our history of stewardship and service. Tennesseans are proud. What is not a source of pride is our litter problem.
