Improving mobility in metro Atlanta is critical to ensure that the region has a high quality of life and a strong, vibrant economy. The Atlanta Region’s Plan acknowledges we can’t build our way out of congestion. No region can. In many ways, congestion is a byproduct of a healthy economy.
But that doesn’t mean things can’t improve. A balanced approach that provides better roads and highways, along with expanded transit and bike-ped options, can make a real difference.
The Atlanta Region’s Plan includes funding to expand the region’s network of Express toll lanes, improve major arterial roads and intersections to address the region’s worst bottlenecks, and build sidewalks and bike lanes to make it easier to get around town without driving.
The Atlanta region is moving forward on all of these fronts. Indeed, billions of dollars are being invested over the next few years to improve metro Atlanta’s transportation network.
