Transportation is a key item of concern of the City of Locust Grove as much as it for much of the residents in the Atlanta Metropolitan Region.
Currently, the City is working with GDOT and ARC on the inclusion of planning money in the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for the Bethlehem Road Interchange as well as for possible new local projects to enhance safety and reduced congestion.
Locally, we are working on improvements to Market Place Boulevard and SR 42 for signalization as well as improvements to Bill Gardner Parkway under the I-75 Interchange to free up movement through this critical congestion point.
For the Future, we are working in draft form a local wish-list of transportation and mobility projects to incorporate vehicle, freight, pedestrian and bicycle movements at an estimated cost of over $320 million that will require revenues from Federal, State, and Local sources. This plan will be refined further to approximate the amount of revenues we can reasonably expect for the list of projects and their benefit to the overall area.
