Powers Ferry Transportation Study

Study Overview

The Powers Ferry Road study area, which straddles I-285 at Northside Drive, serves as the western gateway to the City of Sandy Springs. The area is home to a regional employment center and residential neighborhoods, is served by small scale retail, and provides access to the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. This study will conduct a technical transportation evaluation of the Powers Ferry area. It will identify holistic improvements to support pedestrian, bicycle, transit, and vehicular travel and develop an implementation plan to move projects and strategies forward. The study builds off the improvements identified in the Powers Ferry Small Area Plan. It will further evaluate these improvements and determine the feasibility and costs associated with implementation.
