Tri-County Alliance

Traffic congestion is an emerging issue in South Metro Atlanta. Congestion impacts not only commute times, but it also hinders economic development. To address these concerns, the SR 74 Alliance formed in July of 2005 to address access and mobility in Fayette, South Fulton and Coweta communities.

The Congestion Relief Accord, an inter-governmental Memorandum of Understanding was signed by representatives from Fulton and Coweta counties, City of Peachtree City, City of Senoia, City of Union City and the City of Fairburn as well as the South Fulton Community Improvement District (CID). It identified these projects as a top priority:

  • Improvements to the State Route 74/I-85 interchange
  • Implementation of vanpooling and park and ride lot site identification
  • Representation from the jurisdictions within South Metro Atlanta on the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Regional Freight Study
  • Consider studies of I-85 area interchanges

The group developed a mission statement which states:

The Tri County Alliance (TCA) is a forum of government and community members from South Fulton, Fayette and Coweta counties working together to discuss and promote access and mobility solutions on regionally significant corridors in the tri-county area. Collaborating with regional and state partners, the Alliance leverages resources and experiences to preserve and improve transportation, economic development and quality of life for the South Fulton, Fayette and Coweta communities.
