TDOT's Record-A-Comment was established to allow citizens to record comments or concerns about TDOT construction projects. Signs featuring the toll-free Record-A-Comment phone number are posted in construction zones across the state.  Callers may dial 1-877-SmartWay to record comments and to provide e-mail or street addresses if they want to receive a response. Those who leave contact information will receive a response within seven days.

The Record-A-Comment hotline is monitored by TDOT Community Relations staff in Nashville, and is checked several times daily.  Suggestions and complaints are shared with the project managers overseeing construction sites.
