Chamblee Mobility


The Multi-Modal Transportation Plan

The city has many competing transportation infrastructure priorities; however, the city does not have a comprehensive tool to define and prioritize the current and future transportation infrastructure needs. The city has determined it is important to develop a single plan to define and prioritize projects to maximize infrastructure investments for the community, thereby guiding actions that will contribute to some larger objectives such as higher levels of mobility, safety and mode choice, less congestion, higher quality of life, attractive business climate, or an efficient freight system.

In Summer 2018, the city selected Stantec Consulting Services to develop a comprehensive plan for the city's transportation needs, called the Multi-Modal Transportation Plan. The city previously partnered with the consultant, Stantec, to develop the Self-Driving Shuttle Feasibility Study and Concept Plan adopted in early 2018 by City Council.

An Advisory Committee has been assembled to guide the planning process for the Multi-Modal Transportation Plan project and the Rail Trail Phase 3 Extension LCI, which is happening concurrently. The Advisory Committee had its initial meeting on September 20th, its second meeting on October 25th, and will meet again in January 2019. In mid-October, the consultant also held one-on-one, and small group, interviews with key stakeholders.

The Rail Trail Phase 3 Extension Livable Centers Initiative (LCI)

In February of 2018, the city was awarded an $80,000 Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) grant from the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) to fund a new planning study to explore possibilities to further extend the city's Rail Trail through Downtown Chamblee. This new grant will lead to a concept plan for Phase 3 of the rail trail, which will extend the trail eastward from Chamblee Dunwoody Way through the new Town Center project to Ingersoll Rand Drive. The study will also explore possible locations for the rail trail to cross the MARTA tracks to the south of Downtown and extend to New Peachtree Road, as well as to potentially connect with new mixed-use development at the former GM site in Doraville.
