Atlanta-Athens Connectivity and Mobility Study

Athens to Atlanta Logo

The Georgia DOT Office of Planning is conducting a study to evaluate and improve the transportation system in the Atlanta-Athens corridor, which encompasses portions of DeKalb, Gwinnett, Barrow, Walton, Oconee, Rockdale, Clarke, and Jackson Counties. GDOT will take a comprehensive look at the entire Atlanta-Athens Corridor, particularly focusing on travel patterns between these two metro areas, as well as various activity centers in between.

This study will also consider the impact of transportation on economic development and land development in the corridor. The final product of this study will be recommendations for improvements as well as strategies for maintaining the integrity of our transportation system.
