 What Does TFA Mean to You?

Passage of the Transportation Funding Act of 2015 yielded the flexibility and funding to begin addressing major investments in Georgia’s transportation network. A concerted effort was undertaken to identify projects that have established existing needs and ensured meaningful, positive results for all Georgians. Improved infrastructure projects include 11 megaprojects that will build a better Georgia by creating additional capacity, relieving traffic congestion and providing more travel options for motorists.

Additionally, the TFA will allow GDOT to address critical infrastructure needs through routine and capital maintenance projects. Key maintenance and operations activity will include pothole repair, striping, guardrail repair, resurfacing of state routes and Interstates, bridge replacements and maintenance, safety improvement projects and local maintenance and improvement funding.
