Transportation

In Georgia, we are serious about keeping our word, being wise stewards of taxpayer dollars, and delivering the world-class transportation infrastructure our state needs to compete in the 21st Century global economy.

Georgia is growing. Our pro-business climate has generated statewide economic expansion, and our population has grown as a result. Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and the Port of Savannah have generated significant business investments, but continued growth will require a seamless transportation network that facilitates the quick transport of goods and people throughout Georgia and the Southeast.    

Georgians also deserve innovative solutions to alleviate highway congestion and decrease commute times, ensuring we spend less time in the car and more time with our families. 

To accomplish these goals, we must systematically invest in roads, bridges, highways and transit systems where the greatest needs exist. In 2015, the General Assembly acted decisively to pass the Transportation Funding Act. Under this legislation, we required the Georgia Department of Transportation to develop a 10-Year Statewide Strategic Plan to ensure that additional revenue dedicated to transportation projects is truly moving the needle for every Georgian. It is crucial to address the transportation demands of today, while planning for the infrastructure needs of tomorrow as continued breakthroughs in technology emerge.
