Atlanta — Dec 01, 2021
The Atlanta Regional Commission has approved an update for the fiscal 2o20-2025 Transportation Improvement Program, or TIP, which programs federal and state funding for transportation projects across metro Atlanta.
This amendment, which has been approved by the ARC Board and ARC’s Transportation and Air Quality Committee, 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.
The full project list can be found at atlantaregional.org/amendment.
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 update is part of the Atlanta region’s ongoing efforts to expand our transportation network in a strategic way to boost mobility options and safety,” said John Orr, managing director of ARC’s Transportation and Mobility Access group. “These investments are critical to maintain our region’s economic vitality and high quality of life.”
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.
