Modernizing Georgia’s Transportation System: Progress and Challenges in Providing Safe, Efficient and Well-Maintained Roads, Highways and Bridges

This report investigates the use, condition, and safety of the bridges, highways and roads of Georgia. It examines congestion, traffic safety, and transportation funding. In 2015, the Georgia legislature approved the 2015 Transportation Funding Act which allowed the state to address critical transportation needs. While this funding greatly improved Georgia's ability to support road safety and infrastructure repairs, this report suggests that Georgia will need additional increases in funding from local, state and federal governments to maintain its aging transportation system and make needed improvements. Data in this report includes: transportation projects that will be underway by 2021; transportation projects that lack funding to proceed prior to 2022; and 11 major mobility projects to be completed between 2021 and 2029 requiring Design-Build-Finance or Design-Build-Finance-Operate-Maintain. The report recommends that Georgia increase transportation funding to maintain economic competitiveness and stimulate long-term economic growth.
