Long Range Transportation Plan comment period

Monday opens a public comment opportunity for an amendment to the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), which concerns a proposed new interchange connecting the Loop to the Atlanta Highway.
The interchange is designed to relieve increasing congestion on Mitchell Bridge and Tallassee/Oglethorpe Roads, which cannot be widened. To balance project funds, three other projects are being modified in the LRTP. Information on the amendment will be available here soon.
No public meetings will be held, but comments may be sent online to through March 12.
