Atlanta is the center of the fastest growing region in the United States, home to the world’s busiest international airport, and is where three major interstate highways and two major railroad networks converge, forming an important transportation center for freight in the southeast and the United States. Atlanta is also home to a multi-billion dollar bus and rail system, the first in the southeast. This infrastructure helps us get to work, to play, and to access goods and services from all over the world.
Atlanta`s resurgence in population and economic growth, as well as, impacts from neighboring suburban communities place enormous stress on the existing transportation infrastructure. To prepare for the future, Atlanta is compelled to develop a rational Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) which insures mobility, continued economic growth, and desired quality of life for citizens and visitors alike. Connect Atlanta (the city's first CTP), will ensure that Atlanta continues to lead the region in efficient, effective and affordable transportation.
The Connect Atlanta Plan was adopted in 2008. Links to the chapters, appendices, and map book that comprise the Connect Atlanta Plan can be found below.
Connect Atlanta Plan: Technical Corrections Process
This process will incorporate recent transportation planning work efforts over the past three years including those efforts that are a part of the Transportation Investment Act proposal. The technical revision process will also incorporate project recommendations from recently adopted LCI and sub-area plans. The inclusion of these recommendations will assist in the allocation process when implementation funding becomes available. The overall goal is to ensure that the Connect Atlanta Plan provides the most current and accurate project information. The final deliverable will be a supplemental document to the adopted Connect Atlanta Plan. It is the intent to request adoption of the supplemental document to be incorporated into the Connect Atlanta Plan.
The technical corrections process will consist of stakeholder input providing information necessary for update of the Connect Atlanta Plan using a project submittal form. These project submittal forms will include sections where stakeholders can provide any changes or corrections to projects currently listed within the Connect Atlanta Plan. Also stakeholders can provide information on projects that are a part of planning or transportation studies that were adopted between December 2008 and February 2012. We will seek information regarding any changes to the project scope, study limits, phasing of project and any project cost information. Staff will use information from the submitted forms and those changes and/or additions will form the basis for development of the Connect Atlanta Plan - Technical Corrections report. Check out the project flyer for additional information on the technical corrections process.
