Atlanta, Fulton County Voters Face Major Infrastructure Funding Decisions

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports, “A wave of transportation initiatives on the ballot in Fulton County and Atlanta this November could place the region’s infrastructure investment in the national spotlight for the next decade, if voters approve, a panel of transportation experts said [September 1].” The report adds, “Georgia Department of Transportation earlier this year unveiled an ambitious, 10-year, $10 billion project list fueled by the new gas taxes that includes a network of managed toll lanes along I-285 and Ga. 400, rebuilding the I-20 interchanges on the east and west sides of I-285, and projects to ease truck traffic on I-75 and near the Savannah port.”
