Statewide Strategic Transportation Plan
Final Statewide Strategic Transportation Plan Approved by Governor and State Transportation Board
Governor Sonny Perdue officially approved the Statewide Strategic Transportation Plan (SSTP) on June 2, 2010. The State Transportation Board voted to adopt the SSTP at its monthly meeting on June 17, 2010. Senate Bill 200, officially OCGA 32-2-41.1, required the Georgia Department of Transportation’s Director of Planning to prepare a final Statewide Strategic Transportation Plan (SSTP). The SSTP is a comprehensive document examining a wide variety of transportation options and solutions for Georgia and its citizens. The final SSTP document evaluates the return on investment from funding any available transportation method. The end result shows that although there is not one clear best transportation mode, a strategic level of investment in many types of initiatives will provide Georgians with the optimum benefits and results for the future. The SSTP was developed in accordance with each of the investment policies required under Senate Bill 200, as passed during the 2009 legislative session.
