What is the environmental process and why is it needed?
The Rome-Cartersville Development Corridor (RCDC) will connect US 411 and I-75 in Bartow County, assisting commuters who work or live in Atlanta and surrounding areas.
During the RCDC project, GDOT’s environmental team has been busy conducting surveys within two broad alternative corridors that were introduced to the CAC in November 2015. Prior to starting in the field, we mailed more than 300 letters to alert property owners and introduce the RCDC project. While we conducted desktop research on many topics required in the environmental process, our primary focus has been on the extensive field surveys including the following: database then supported effective planning by the engineering team to refine the broad corridors into two preliminary alternatives.
Using the survey results, the team created a database of the resources and constraints with Geographical Information System (GIS) and other software. This database then supported effective planning by the engineering team to refine the broad corridors into Alternative 2B. Ongoing environmental studies will continue to support the design.
