Georgia 2050 SWTP/2020 SSTP Update


The purpose of this project is to update the document used to meet all state requirements for a Statewide Strategic Transportation Plan (SSTP) and all federal requirements for a Statewide Transportation Plan (SWTP) for Georgia. This document combines the traditional transportation analyses of a long-range transportation plan (SWTP) with the strategic business case for transportation investment (SSTP). The initial document was the result of a two-year project beginning in May 2013 and concluded in 2015. The result was a plan that provides a comprehensive look at all transportation issues facing Georgia now and through the year 2040.  The plan is now being updated through the year 2050 with the latest demographic information, transportation needs assessment, and upcoming public involvement activities.  The document includes growth trends and projections, economics, existing conditions, future needs and an investment strategy for transportation in the state.

Statewide Strategic Transportation Plan (SSTP)

Senate Bill 200 (SB 200), as passed during the 2009 legislative session, required the creation of an SSTP, which is to serve as the official, intermodal, comprehensive, fiscally constrained transportation plan which includes projects, programs, and other activities to support implementation of the state’s strategic transportation goals and policies. The SSTP sets the strategic direction and makes the business case for increased transportation investment within the state. The current SSTP has a “horizon year” of 2040. The SSTP is required to be updated every two years.


Statewide Transportation Plan (SWTP)

Federal regulations require states to have a multimodal long-range transportation plan that maintains at least a 20-year window into the future. The current SWTP has a “horizon year” of 2040. The SWTP assesses the current and future performance of all major transportation modes in the state and also examines the linkages between modes. The SWTP also contains statewide economic and transportation demand forecasts for the horizon year of the plan.

The SWTP defines financially constrained and unconstrained statewide transportation programs estimate the programs’ costs, and forecasts available and potential funding. The SWTP provides GDOT with technical and programmatic guidance needed to meet the transportation demands of the state.
