PATH400 was on the list of TSPLOST projects approved by voters in November 2016, but funds had not been committed to the project. Councilman Howard Shook advocated on behalf of PATH400, submitting legislation that allocates funds from the second year of TSPLOST and lining up support from Mayor Reed and the other City Council members. That legislation was approved by the full council on Nov. 20.
ARC’s TIP project list will go through a 30-day public comment period that begins December 18. Following that, the list must be approved by the ARC and Georgia Regional Transit Authority boards before it becomes final.
