Governor Perdue Certifies $146 Million in Metro Atlanta Transportation Projects

List includes $25 million to help fund MARTA services

Today Governor Sonny Perdue announced that he has submitted the required “1511 Certification” on transportation projects in metro Atlanta that will be funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

“These funds include much needed road widening projects, improvements in our intelligent transportation system and upgrades to traffic signals that will ease congestion,” said Governor Perdue. “It also includes $25 million to keep MARTA moving.”

Projects include widening of Eagles Landing Parkway in Henry County, improvements to 14th Street in downtown Atlanta improvements and additional lanes on State Route 20 in Gwinnett County. Governor Perdue submitted the certification as part of a June 12 letter to US DOT Secretary Ray LaHood. In the letter, the Governor informed Secretary LaHood that more projects will be certified as the Georgia DOT and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) amend their TIPs to include additional projects.
