Track Road Projects on the Web

August 6--You can track area road projects on a new state webpage.  Here's how.

"The Georgia Department of Transportation today launched a brand new, dedicated website focused on the Transportation Investment Act of 2010 (TIA) projects and activities.  This website, www.GA-TIA.com, provides full access to available project information and activities, as well as revenue collections and reporting documents.

The Transportation Investment Act of 2010 requires the establishment of a website to publish a non-technical report for each TIA region showing the status of project budgets from original estimates to current estimates and all expenditures in the preceding year.  This new TIA website not only creates the best arrangement for those reports, but also offers an opportunity to showcase specific project information in a manageable format.

“This website really brings all the information about TIA together in one place so everyone can quickly access key information about projects and the program,” State Transportation Board Chair Johnny Floyd commented.  “It is important that the Department and the other agencies involved in delivering TIA projects present all the information in a way that is easy to navigate and understand.  This website accomplishes that.”

The TIA website provides information on projects on the approved investment lists in the Central Savannah River Area, Heart of Georgia-Altamaha and River Valley regions, and may be sorted by project type, county and band schedule of construction start.  Additionally, each project listing also houses the original information sheet presented to voters including mapped location of projects, descriptions and budget.

The TIA website provides audience-specific pages for Local Governments, Consultants/Contractors, Small/DBE/Veteran-owned businesses and Media outlets.  All pertinent reports, including revenue collections, Citizen’s Review Panel documents and the original House Bill 277, may be reviewed on the website.

Forty-six counties and their respective cities comprise the three regional districts that approved the TIA referendum in 2012.  Cumulatively, they are expected to self-generate approximately $1.8 billion in new revenue dedicated to local transportation improvements.  Georgia DOT will coordinate work for cities and counties on some smaller jobs and also assist in the engineering and construction management of larger projects.  All of the projects were selected by regional commission roundtables of local elected officials after much public input.  Seventy-five percent of the revenues will be utilized for the construction of these roundtable pre-selected projects while the remaining 25 percent will be disbursed to the regions’ governments each month on a predetermined formula basis for discretionary use on local transportation-related efforts. Full information on TIA may be found at www.GA-TIA.com.
