2 Min. State DOT Update: Tennessee DOT Commissioner Schroer is Hiring to Cut Costs

In this Two-Minute State DOT Update video, Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) Commissioner John Schroer details the many ways his agency is being restructured to cut costs and meet future demands.  “We’re maybe the only state transportation department in the nation that is hiring people,” said Schroer. “Many DOTs are taking work to the private sector but at TDOT we’re hiring designers, engineers, and other staff to do more work in-house and we’re saving millions of dollars.”  Schroer also discusses TDOT’s statewide effort to create a long-range strategy to dramatically change the way the agency operates.
