NASHVILLE, TN. (AP) - Commissioner John Schroer of the Tennessee Department of Transportation says he plans to continue making tours of projects across the state.

He wrapped up weeklong tours last week. They began in late June in Chattanooga and concluded in Roane County.

The visits were designed to give local, state and transportation officials the chance to see projects under construction and to learn about future work.

The next tours are likely in 2012.
