A Century of Transportation History

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Department of Transportation’s Centennial Celebration mobile transportation museum exhibit is now being showcased at the Tennessee State Museum in Nashville, Tennessee.

Those interested in viewing 100 years of transportation history should make plans to visit the state museum before May 1, 2015. The exhibit features historical documents, roadway design plans, books, and equipment used by TDOT employees decades ago. In May, the mobile exhibit will continue its journey along Tennessee’s first road, SR-1, where its next stop will be in Crossville, Tennessee. The mobile exhibit tour will run through June 2015.

TDOT turns 100 on July 1, 2015, and our Centennial Celebration plans have been a year in the making. Plans include the release of a special edition transportation history book and burying a time capsule at the Bicentennial Mall to be unearthed July 1, 2115.
