Transportation Funding Act of 2015 means increased opportunities…
CARTERSVILLE FORUM TO HIGHLIGHT UPCOMING NORTHWEST GEORGIA WORK
WHAT: The Georgia Department of Transportation’s Northwest Georgia (District Six) Office invites you to join us from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, January 12, 2016 at the Komatsu Training & Demonstration Center in Cartersville to learn how the Transportation Funding Act of 2015 (TFA) will drastically increase transportation investment in routine maintenance, capital projects and local governments. Additions in motor fuel funds thanks to the TFA infused an additional $757 million in the Fiscal Year 16 and $820 million in the FY 17 amended Georgia DOT budget requests. Commissioner Russell R. McMurry called the TFA the single biggest infrastructure vote in Georgia’s history.
“Georgia DOT is thrilled to see the positive impact resulting from the Transportation Funding Act of 2015 as it will allow us to make a substantially higher investment in taking care of our aged infrastructure,” McMurry said. “HB 170 provides significantly more funding to make capital investments in safety, operations and mobility.”
Topics to be discussed January 12 include:
- TFA/HB 170 and what this means for GDOT
- Statewide proposed work types and categories
- District proposed work types
- DBE/small business considerations
