Highway bill bankrolls Tennessee transit of all types

The University of Tennessee-Knoxville would get $20 million for a Joint Institute for Advanced Materials to be shared with Oak Ridge National Laboratory about half of what the institute is expected to cost.

"It comes through transportation because the center has a clear mission for transportation," said UT-Knoxville Chancellor Loren Crabtree. "It will deal with nanotechnology research related particularly to safety issues and new materials that can be used in a variety of transportation modes from automobiles through aircraft."
