Southern Fulton County Comprehensive Transportation Plan

As the prime consultant, MMP is leading the development of the CTP for Southern Fulton County which includes eight municipalities, including the Cities of Chattahoochee Hills, College Park, East Point, Fairburn, Hapeville, Palmetto, South Fulton, and Union City.  Project recommendations from the Southern Fulton County CTP will be incorporated into the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) for the Atlanta region.  As home to the world’s busiest airport (Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport), service as a major freight hub for the southeast; and lower-income residents in need of economic and workforce development opportunities, Southern Fulton County has unique transportation challenges with competing priorities.  While coordinating with the MPO and the eight municipalities, MMP will be overseeing an extensive public engagement effort, as well as leading data collection, inventory, needs assessment, recommendations, and documentation.  As part of an extensive in-person and digital public engagement effort, MMP will be dynamically refining the target areas based on geocoded social media participation to determine which areas need additional reach.  The inventory and needs assessment will include and analysis of state of good repair; roadways; transit; active transportation; freight and goods movement; human services transportation; transportation demand management programs; intelligent transportation systems and technology; asset management, resiliency, and emergency preparedness planning; and a system performance monitoring and reporting program. In addition, MMP will be leading all travel demand modeling; development of projects for evaluation, including emerging technologies; project prioritization; and the development of a system performance scorecard that illustrates metrics by municipality to demonstrate the benefits of projects in nearby municipalities to other municipalities.  MMP will also lead the identification of funding sources for each project, including a grant strategy.
