Atlanta Regional Managed Lanes Implementation Plan (MLIP)
The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) is conducting a study, the Atlanta Regional Managed Lanes Implementation Plan (MLIP), to evaluate managed lane options in the Atlanta area. This study serves as an update to GDOT’s 2010 Managed Lane System Plan (MLSP), which was the first comprehensive system-wide evaluation of urban area managed lanes in the United States.
The MLIP study will update the financial plan for the previous MLSP’s list of managed lane projects to reflect current funding constraints along with reducing the reliance on long-term toll concessions. Additionally, the MLIP will identify all capacity-adding projects where the use of managed lanes may be appropriate, along the interstate and other limited access facilities, and result in a newly prioritized list of managed lanes projects.
This study is a coordinated effort with the Metro Atlanta Operational Planning Study (OPS), which will focus on identifying operational improvements to relieve congestion within the existing transportation system.
