View the Columbia County Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). This study is a culmination of efforts by county staff, ARTS (Augusta Regional Transportation Study), the Georgia Department of Transportation, and HNTB Consulting to review the transportation needs of the county over from 2000 to 2025. The study was accepted by the Board of Commissioners on August 17, 2004 for inclusion in the 2005 Growth Management Plan Update and was the subject of 3 public meetings for input. Comments may be made to Nayna Mistry, Planning Manager, (706) 312-7178 or via email. The proposed transportation needs are outlined in Chapter 9 of the study and must be incorporated into the capital improvements program of the county and, for regionally-significant roads, into the ARTS Transportation Improvements Program and Long Range Transportation Plan, currently under development.
