Posted: Updated:

KINGSPORT, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Department of Transportation is seeking public opinion about safety, maintenance and congestion issues in the northeastern region of the state.

The Kingsport Times-News (http://bit.ly/1LxR7EP) reports the agency is seeking comments as it creates a new long-range transportation plan, which will set priorities across the state. The plan will consider issues facing motorized vehicles, bicycles and pedestrian along. Officials also want to hear about concerns with safety and maintenance, congestion, freight and transit.

Kingsport Metropolitan Transportation Planning Organization Coordinator Troy Ebbert said TDOT wants feedback about transportation issues in different areas as part of its planning process.

To comment, people can visit TDOT's website, http://wikimapping.com/wikimap/TN-Plan.html , and tag spots on the map with "green" dots.
