Transportation Secretary Foxx Visits Nashville As Part Of Trip

CREATED Apr 16, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx made a stop in Nashville Tuesday.

The stop was part of an eight-state bus trip to whip up public support to keep transportation aid flowing to states.

Foxx toured the Charlotte Avenue overpass bridge, which officials had to close three times last year because of falling concrete.

Secretary Foxx said Congress' indecision about how to pay for programs is again threatening to shut down road and transit projects, like repairing the Charlotte Avenue overpass bridge.

The Highway Trust Fund is forecast to run dry sometime before September 30 and possibly as early as July.
