Council votes to upgrade Wilcox Tunnel
The Chattanooga Council agrees the Wilcox Tunnel could use some upgrades.
The council voted unanimously to apply for a $25 million federal grant that could allow the building of a second tunnel with two lanes and improving the existing tunnel.
The previous council tried for a grant last year, but was not awarded the money.
City transportation officials say the grant would require the city to match $22 million for the work.
