"It's a tool that we use when an incident happens, and we either get a notification from emergency officials or a citizen that there's an accident," said Blythe Bailey, head of the Chattanooga department of transportation.

Mr. Bailey provided a very interesting presentation. At the start of his presentation, he gave the background of the Chattanooga Department of Transportation (CDOT). He stated what the department's goals and priorities are on the public and transportation. Mr. Bailey also gave some information on his background and where he worked before CDOT. Mr. Bailey has a big interest in how buildings are put together and how cities are structured. He showed various different plans that the city has when it comes to renovations and improving streets or sections of the city of Chattanooga. After discussing some of the projects by CDOT, he went into depth about the Wilcox tunnel restoration. He presented some background information for the tunnel and the existing conditions. He showed pictures of places where the tunnel needs to be improved or restored for the safety of everyone. He showed alternative solutions and also showed the scope of work being done to the tunnel.

Monday, January 11th: Wilcox Tunnel Restoration - Blythe Bailey, Chattanooga Department of Transportation

In addition to the I-24 Ridge Cut, there are three tunnels that traverse Missionary Ridge to connect Chattanooga's east and west side: the Bachman Tunnel that joins Ringgold Road, the East Brainerd Road Tunnel and the Wilcox Tunnel on Wilcox Blvd. Of the three, the Wilcox Tunnel is the oldest (some 83 years old) and in much need of renovation. It has been at least 20 years since a liner to control water flow was installed. Other tunnels in the area are State maintained, but Wilcox is the only city owned tunnel. Last year the City of Chattanooga allocated over $2 million in capital funds for the renovations to the tunnel, including safety improvements, lighting upgrades and a new inner tunnel liner to halt water seepage into the tunnel. The work began in August of last year and is expected to be completed by the end of February. Blythe Bailey, Administrator of Chattanooga Department of Transportation will provide us with a presentation about the project. He will briefly describe the history of the tunnel and provide us with some of the engineering and construction details including the current work that is designed and planned and the progress of construction.

Blythe Bailey, administrator for the Chattanooga Department of Transportation, told members of the Brainerd Kiwanis Club on Friday that one of the most significant trends in improving infrastructure is an array of IST signalised traffic lights. He said they can communicate with one another to adjust light times and relieve congestion in real time.

Mr. Bailey said that the 350 signals already built in Chattanooga can analyze the amount of traffic coming from different directions and respond accordingly.
More light systems like that are being installed in the coming years and their uses are varied. They have the potential to "talk" with emergency vehicles rushing to a scene and even some Carta buses will be able to communicate with them to cut travel times.
Mr. Bailey also spoke about how the department works to address traffic issues and limit collisions by repaving or repainting.
One particular change he mentioned was the recent modification to North Market Street which trimmed the road down from four to three lanes.
He said that in the course of a year there were 42 collisions at that location, but restructuring roadways can lead to almost 50 percent fewer collisions.
