East Georgia Multi-County Transportation Study
In 2007, the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), in association with Greene, Jasper, Morgan, and Putnam counties, completed a Multi-County Transportation Study to address transportation needs in the four-county area. These four counties are located on the eastern fringe of the Atlanta Metropolitan Area and the southern fringe of the Athens-Oconee Study Area. The study area is also within 50 miles of the Augusta Urban Area.
The focal point of growth in these four counties is the Lake Oconee and Lake Sinclair recreation areas. While the four-county area were evaluated as a whole in order to address development impacts and infrastructure deficiencies that cross county lines, each county received a customized individual transportation plan.
Public input was received and had a significant role in the development of this study. The final documents for each county in the study area are shown below.
