Lakeland - The big decision makers for the Department of Transportation got an up close look at our traffic needs Tuesday.

D.O.T. Commissioner Harold Linnenkohl, Deputy Commissioner Larry Dent, and several board members took a tour of Lanier, Echols, and Cook counties. Local leaders showed them troubled intersections in the area and busy roads that they want four-laned, like Highway 221 from Lakeland to Valdosta.

"Unless I can see it first hand, I don't really get the full effect. By coming down here, I can stand out here at an intersection and I see the trucks so I know the impact," said Linnenkohl. 

D.O.T. leaders also checked up on projects along Interstate 75 between Lowndes and Cook Counties, and are hoping to speed up construction.
