Tennessee transportation officials host a groundbreaking ceremony for Interstate 69 in Obion County Tuesday. TDOT Commissioner John Schroer joins state representatives Bill Sanderson and Andy Holt at 10:30 a.m. at Discovery Park of America in Union City.

I-69 is a disconnected interstate highway with numerous state projects underway to create a seamless corridor from Canada to Mexico.

The highway will run through the Jackson Purchase in western Kentucky and far western Tennessee.
