Rome-Cartersville Development Corridor

 Project Overview

The purpose of the Rome-Cartersville Development Corridor (RCDC) is to connect US 411 and I-75, providing improved mobility for commuters, residents, and freight movement throughout Floyd and Bartow Counties. The RCDC would relieve congestion along the existing US 411/SR 20 to I-75 corridor. Transportation needs have been identified for the new RCDC, including:

  • The need for improved access and connectivity to support economic development: Enhance access to existing and future development.
  • The need for an improved truck route: Accommodate growing freight traffic and relieve existing truck congestion on other roadways.
  • The need to provide better local access: Increase mobility and connectivity in the corridor and surrounding areas.
  • The need for an improved connection to I-75: Support existing industry and planned growth in Floyd and Bartow Counties.

These needs were compiled in cooperation with local stakeholders from Bartow and Floyd Counties.
