REGIONAL REPORTS EXAMINE CONDITION, USE, FUNDING AND SAFETY OF ROADS AND BRIDGES IN ATLANTA AND NORTHERN GEORGIA REGIONS
A series of five regional reports and a cumulative statewide report will be released Monday by TRIP, a national transportation research nonprofit based in Washington, DC. The reports examine road and bridge conditions, traffic safety, travel and population trends, congestion and transportation funding needs in the Atlanta region and the four surrounding regions.
TRIP will release individual “Moving Georgia Forward” reports for the following regions at Monday’s news conference: Atlanta, Georgia Mountains, Northeast Georgia, Northwest Georgia and Three Rivers. The reports include regional pavement conditions, highway fatality data, transportation funding needs, bridge conditions and a list of the most deficient bridges in each region.
A series of seven reports for the remaining Georgia regions – Coastal Georgia, Central Savannah River, Heart of Georgia Altamaha, Middle Georgia, River Valley, Southern Georgia and Southwest Georgia- were released on Friday, November 13 and are available on the TRIP website.
