New Report Identifies Georgia’s 50 Worst Transportation Choke-points And Strategies For Improvement

A new TRIP report that identifies the 50 worst chokepoints on Georgia’s roads, bridges and transit systems will be released at a news conference in Atlanta at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, April 19, 2010.

The report being released is titled “Georgia’s Transportation Chokepoints: The Top 50 Chokepoints and Remedies for Relief”. It pinpoints the 50 segments of Georgia’s road, highway and transit systems that impede routine travel, commuting or commerce or place limits on economic development because of deficient design or inadequate capacity. These chokepoints are located throughout the state, with many of them in the Atlanta area, including numerous portions of I-75, I-85, I-285 and segments of the MARTA system. TRIP is a national nonprofit transportation research group based in Washington, DC.

TRIP’s Frank Moretti will present the findings of the report at the news conference. Local officials will also be on hand to comment on the report.
