Significant Improvements Planned for Transportation Throughout The Metro Atlanta Region


July 01, 2018

According to a report from Myajc.com, recently passed legislation will significantly improve transportation throughout the metro Atlanta region. The legislation established a regional transit authority for the metro Atlanta area and will build on the progress that's already been made in improving mobility in the area.

Improvements to the current transportation systems will help our communities become more connected than ever before, link people’s homes to the employment centers where they work, and increase the overall livability and economic health of the metro Atlanta area. There is a long-term transportation plan in place for the area that does not attempt to build the region’s way out of congestion but instead aims to relieve congestion by tending to the health of the regional economy in addition to making strategic improvements to area roads and highways. The plan will also make more transportation options available by increasing support for bicyclists and pedestrians via multi-use trails and other improvements. Transit infrastructure will also be strengthened through a variety of projects that will increase the availability of public transportation and expand the service areas for public transportation systems.

The changes that are taking place throughout the Metro Atlanta area are the result of significant financial resources that have been dedicated at the state and local level. The state has virtually doubled its yearly commitment to funding transportation projects in the area, and area voters have approved sales tax increases that will help fund localized projects. The impact of the increases in state and local funding are so significant that the improvements that are planned for the area’s transportation and transit systems can happen sooner, rather than later.
