The Office of Planning has initiated the Connect Central Georgia Study to assess safety, mobility, and connectivity across one of the most important transportation links in the state. The study area, which spans the middle of the state of Georgia from the Alabama border to the South Carolina border, includes four key cities - Columbus, Macon, Warner Robins, and Augusta. The area is home to three military bases (Fort Benning in Columbus, Robins Air Force Base in Warner Robins, and Fort Gordon in Augusta) as well as significant natural and agricultural resources that drive economic development in the state.
Building upon recommendations from Georgia's Statewide Strategic Plan (2010 - 2030), also known as Investing in Tomorrow's Transportation Today (IT3), this study will be the first holistic look at traffic and goods movement across this portion of the state and will build off of the accomplishments and lessons learned from previous transportation studies. The study includes thorough analysis of operational and capacity needs to improve safety, freight movements, person mobility, and connectivity across Central Georgia through the year 2035.
