Albany Long Range Transportation Plan 2035 Update

The Dougherty Area Regional Transportation Study (DARTS) is the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the urbanized area of the City of Albany, Dougherty County, and the southern half of Lee County.  DARTS is responsible for the development of a Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) which is required before federal funds can be expended on a project within the DARTS study area boundary.  The LRTP process involves the coordination of the improvements for all modes of transportation for the upcoming 25 year period including highways, bridges, transit, bicycles, pedestrians, airports, highway and rail freight movement, Intelligent Transportation Systems, and transportation system enhancements. The planning requirements include a technical planning process plus regular stakeholder and community involvement. MPH managed the stakeholder and community involvement component of the study.
