Every five to seven years local governments within the Atlanta metropolitan area receive federal funds to update their Comprehensive Transportation Plan. These planning documents inventory and assess the existing condition of a community’s transportation system. Field-collected traffic data, regional travel models, population projections, land-use, public input, crash data, and other factors are used to determine how well the transportation system is serving its citizens and what areas need improvement. The studies then develop and prioritize a list of possible projects for the transportation system. Fayette County’s Transportation Plan scope was expanded to included special emphasis on the State Route 74 corridor and the growing system of paths throughout the cities and county.
