ATLANTA (CBS46) -

The Georgia Department of Transportation will invest $11 Billion in eleven major transportation infrastructure projects that will add capacity and improve mobility in several key regions in the state. 

“We are setting an accelerated delivery schedule for these major projects that will create additional capacity for faster travel, more efficient freight transport and improved operations in critical corridors,” said Commissioner Russell McMurry, P.E.  “The resulting benefits to Georgians will be significant in the form of new capacity, job creation, growth in the state’s economy and continued development of innovative travel options.” 

These projects that are a part of the Major Mobility Investment Program (MMIP), will include three interchange projects, four express lanes projects, three highway widening projects and one commercial vehicle lanes project.

“While these major projects have been in planning for some time, we’re now able to share anticipated timelines for construction, and those timelines are aggressive", McMurry added."The planning that has gone into the advancement of this program speaks to the Georgia DOT’s focus on delivering projects that provide the most beneficial impact for the state."

The MMIP will create more than 13,000 jobs and will spur $2 Billion in growth to Georgia's economy. 

 All projects will be complete by 2025.
