The Georgia Department of Transportation recognized PATH for twenty years of service to the State in a ceremony at the GDOT board meeting in December. PATH has successfully managed over thirty Transportation Enhancement projects to completion since the TE program was initiated in 1992.
“GDOT was a good partner for us right from the beginning” said Ed McBrayer, Executive Director of PATH. “The Department has been supportive of us every step of the way.”
GDOT Board members Emory McClinton and R. L. Brown both praised PATH during the ceremony. “The PATH Foundation has been able to connect our districts,” said McClinton, whose district primarily covers the City of Atlanta. “This has truly been a public-private partnership,” Brown added.
Not only has GDOT administered the TE program and allowed PATH to participate, they have provided right-of-way for trails such as US 278 between Rockmart and Cedartown, and have invited PATH to be part of the decision making process for many bike and pedestrian issues.
We are honored to be recognized by the Department in this way. We look forward to working with GDOT to build and improve facilities for bicycles and pedestrians around the state.
