The SPLOST Transportation project list is focused on creating a complete transportation system for DeKalb County which includes smooth streets, safety improvements for cyclists, pedestrians, school routes, bridges, and intersections as well as enhancements to sidewalk and walking trail connections. The county will use SPLOST funds to leverage other funding sources available from the state and federal governments, other local governments, non-profit organizations, and community improvement districts. SPLOST Transportation projects will support economic development in the county and improve high priority corridors.
