REGIONAL REPORTS EXAMINE CONDITION, USE, FUNDING AND SAFETY OF ROADS AND BRIDGES IN CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN GEORGIA
A series of seven regional reports to be released Friday by TRIP, a national transportation research nonprofit based in Washington, DC, examine road and bridge conditions, traffic safety, travel and population trends, congestion and transportation funding needs in seven Georgia regions.
TRIP will release individual “Moving Georgia Forward” reports for the following regions at Friday’s news conference: Coastal Georgia, Central Savannah River, Heart of Georgia Altamaha, Middle Georgia, River Valley, Southern Georgia and Southwest Georgia. 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 five reports for the remaining Georgia regions – Atlanta, Georgia Mountains, Northeast Georgia, Northwest Georgia and Three Rivers – and a statewide report will be issued on Monday, November 16.
