TSPLOST promises transportation improvements
4 major projects slated for Bulloch County
W vote
New bike and pedestrian trails, additional lanes for the area’s busiest corridors and more paved roads in rural parts of the county will be at stake when Bulloch County voters decide at the polls whether to support a 1-percent sales tax investing in transportation throughout the region. Local voters will join others in a 10-county area in deciding to approve or deny a first-of-its-kind transportation tax, commonly known as TSPLOST, in Georgia — a state that, according to the Georgia Transportation Alliance, spends less per capita on transportation than almost every other in the union. State officials project the new tax could collect approximately $1.6 billion in revenue for the Coastal Region over the next 10 years, to be used for a variety of transportation-related projects.
