Local Maintenance & Improvement Grant (LMIG) Program

Georgia DOT remains committed to help local governments achieve much-needed improvements to the state’s roadway network. The new LMIG program will allow local governments greater flexibility and quicker project delivery while allowing us to effectively administer the program with a reduced workforce and new funding match requirements.  Click here to learn more about LMIG.

Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA)

June 2011, the City of Atlanta and MARTA entered into an agreement to provide for transit related improvements in MARTA service areas.  By virtue of an action taken by the Atlanta Regional Commission, certain federal funds were transferred to MARTA, and in exchange MARTA committed to fund qualified projects contained in the Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) from MARTA's capital budget for the installation of pedestrian accessibility and safety improvements in the public right of way near MARTA transit stations.

The City of Atlanta's share of MARTA funds in the form of grants totals $7.6M for pre-qualified transportation improvement projects listed as Americans with Disability Act (ADA) Ramps and Pedestrian Accessibility  & Safety Improvement Projects.  For a list of projects completed, planned or underway please contact the Capital Improvements Division at (404) 330-6739(404) 330-6739 or visit atl311.com.

Safe Routes to Schools (SRTS)

SRTS is a program created by the federal transportation bill, SAFETEA-LU. The program's goal is to increase the number of children in grades K-8 who bicycle and walk to school. Safe Routes to School is a comprehensive program that includes the 5 Es:

1. Evaluation - Monitoring and researching outcomes and trends through the collection of data, including the collection of mode share before and after the program intervention(s)

3. Education - Teaching the school community about the broad range of transportation choices, instructing them in important life-long safety skills and offering school-bound and school area driver safety campaigns

4. Engineering - Creating operational and physical improvements to the infrastructure surrounding schools that reduce speeds and establishing safer crosswalks, walkways, trails and bikeways

5. Enforcement - Partnering with local law enforcement to ensure drivers obey traffic laws, initiating community enforcement such as crossing guard programs and ensuring that policies are enforced
