Mission Statement

To improve and maintain the safety and integrity of the transportation system of Cherokee County, while minimizing the inconvenience to and protecting the safety of motorists and the community during the construction of transportation improvement projects; to minimize any detrimental environmental impacts as a result of transportation improvement projects; to coordinate transportation improvement projects with all state agencies, local governments and boards to cost effectively improve the transportation system of Cherokee County; and to complete all phases of transportation improvement projects within budget.

 

This department is responsible for managing the Roadway Capital Improvement/SPLOST Roadway Program for Cherokee County's transportation system. That system includes County roadways, intersections, traffic signals and bridges.

A majority of the funding for the Roadway Capital Improvement/SPLOST Roadway Program is generated by the 1% Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST Tax). Funds are also received from the Georgia Department of Transportation and the federal government.

Roadway Capital Improvement Projects are included in the Cherokee County Thoroughfare Plan as well as the Atlanta Regional Commission's short term Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP) and long term Regional Transportation Plan (RTP).

The Roadway Capital Program Management Department handles projects from the concept phase, through the engineering design phase and the construction phase, up until final project acceptance.
