Transportation Alternatives (TA) Program

Georgia DOT partners with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in facilitating and providing an opportunity for local governments to pursue non-traditional transportation related activities such as pedestrian facilities, bicycle facilities, and pedestrian streetscaping projects. TA improves the quality of life for citizens in communities across the state by providing local governments the means to pursue projects that might not otherwise be possible.
