Update guides county-wide infrastructure investments to foster greater connectivity and efficiency
Croy led the consultant team to update the Griffin-Spalding County Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP). As a joint plan update, Spalding’s municipalities of Griffin, Sunny Side, and Orchard Hill were key partners in the plan update process. The CTP update serves as a guide for future transportation investments, while supporting quality transportation and mobility.
This update was built on the previous CTP efforts, identifying areas likely to grow, and preparing the community’s transportation network for development. This effort enables the County to make strategic infrastructure investments to foster mobility, encourage connectivity, maximize roadway operations and safety, support economic development, and minimize environmental impacts to promote a high quality of life for residents.
Our Croy team’s plan engaged key stakeholders and the public through open house meetings and digital engagement strategies, leveraging both traditional and innovative tools to gain valuable feedback and input. This included creating a project website, using engagement platforms such as Social Pinpoint, hosting community workshops, promoting online surveys, and engaging media outlets.
In addition, the CTP update assessed transportation needs in the County by bringing existing travel and development conditions data from 2016 to the current year and extending future projections. The CTP also served to reprioritize projects and identified funding based on anticipated growth.
The final deliverables were submitted and Spalding County and the City of Griffin adopted the CTP update in the Spring of 2023.
