Atlanta — Aug 12, 2021
The Atlanta Regional Commission is now accepting public comment for a proposed update to the FY 2020-2025 Transportation Improvement Program, or TIP, which programs federal and state funding for transportation projects across metro Atlanta. The public comment period began August 5 and ends on August 19.
ARC works closely with officials in cities and counties in the 21-county Atlanta region and partner planning agencies to reflect the most up-to-date information in the TIP and ensure that the project list meets local priorities.
This amendment involves changes to project cost estimates and schedules. Key projects include:
- Convert existing I-75/SR 20 interchange in Henry County to a diverging diamond interchange to improve traffic flow and safety. More information
- New interchange at I-85 and McGinnis Ferry Road in Gwinnett County. Changes include building the north-facing ramps to facilitate a full-diamond interchange and new collector-distributor roads. More information
- Construction of a multi-use trail connecting downtown Tucker and Northlake Mall in DeKalb County, envisioned as part of the city’s Livable Centers Initiative study. More information
The full project list can be found at altantaregional.org/amendment.
“These projects, identified as priorities by our local governments and transportation agencies, will help improve mobility and safety in our region,” said John Orr, managing director of ARC’s Transportation and Mobility Access group. “It’s part of our ongoing efforts to expand our transportation network in an efficient and strategic fashion.”
The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) is the official planning agency for the 11-county Atlanta Region, including Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry and Rockdale counties as well as the City of Atlanta and 74 other cities. The Atlanta Regional Commission serves as a catalyst for regional progress by focusing leadership, attention and planning resources on key regional issues.
