2019 Fayette Transportation Plan and Master Path Plan
The Comprehensive Transportation Plan and the Master Path Plan were jointly developed by one project team and are often referred to as the Transportation Plan. Below is the Final Report of the CTP, approved by the Fayette County Board of Commissioners on December 12th, 2019. We sincerely thank the citizens for their insightful input and continued support.
What is the Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP)?
The County’s Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) is a planning document updated periodically using funding from the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) and is an important tool in identifying and prioritizing transportation needs, recommending possible solutions, and establishing a plan for project delivery and funding.
The CTP has three main sections, described below:
- Inventory of Existing Conditions – this section of the CTP provides a snapshot of Fayette County with respect to planning documents, land use, demographics, growth projections, transportation system characteristics, existing public transportation and human service transportation (HST) services, travel demand management, freight management, and planned/programmed projects. This information creates the baseline against which proposed projects are evaluated.
- Assessment of Current & Future Needs – this section of the report uses various data sources, such as traffic counts, crash data, growth forecasts, regional travel demand model runs, local government’s future land use plans, planned developments, public input, surveys, etc., to identify existing and future transportation needs.
- Recommendations – this section of the CTP uses model run results, public input, findings from the Needs Assessment, the Consultant’s planning and engineering experience, etc., to provide policy and project recommendations. The projects are identified by type (e.g., intersection improvement) and a recommended implementation schedule. Project costs and funding options are also discussed in this section.
