(WTVM) -

The Georgia Department of Transportation is presenting the Draft FY 2014 - 2017 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) in West Central Georgia for public review and comment.

The STIP is a four-year program designed to achieve Georgia's transportation goals as envisioned by the Governor and State Transportation Board to improve the mobility of people and movement of goods across the state, expand Georgia's role in global commerce, reduce injury and loss of life on state roadways, and prioritize investments in Georgia's transportation infrastructure assets.

The pending STIP will specify federally funded transportation projects for non-urban communities in rural Georgia for Fiscal Years 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.

These projects include, but are not limited to, new construction, improvements and maintenance for interstate highways, state routes and bridges. Additional projects include bicycle and pedestrian projects, transportation enhancement projects and public transit projects.

The Georgia DOT District Three Offices in Thomaston will sponsor four Open House meetings where the public can view the Draft FY 14-17 STIP in West Central Georgia, view maps of projects in the local area, discuss projects with Department staff, and formally offer comments. The meetings are open to the public and all constituents are encouraged and welcome to attend.
