Award-winning transportation project increased connectivity and mobility
The Skip Spann Connector was designed to alleviate congestion at and around the busy Interstate 75 and Chastain Road interchange.
The connector was named after the first Chairman of the Town Center Community Improvement District (Town Center CID), The project provides an additional east-west route north of Chastain Road, allowing an alternate path for KSU students and faculty to cross the interstate while affording access to the numerous regional activity centers in the area.
To address the existing congestion challenges and limited access across I-75, a new four-lane divided roadway and bridge was designed. The project also included the addition of slip ramps and a multi-lane roundabout to relieve traffic congestion. To accommodate pedestrians, a share-use sidewalk, bicycle lanes, and enhanced crossings were constructed, as well as sculptural shade structures, lighting, landscape planters, and designated pedestrian zones.
