“The South Fulton CID is working on a group of projects that support an intelligent transportation system (ITS). The ITS will improve the freight corridor along SR 74 to McLarin Road through technology and roadway enhancements, and it will relieve congestion and mobility around Fairburn’s CSX intermodal terminal.
The ITS system will alert trucks to the presence of a train and direct them to an alternate route to access businesses along the corridor. It will also direct trucks to the Fairburn Travel Center while they are waiting for a train to clear the tracks.
The basic ITS architecture and communications network for near-term and long-term deployments of the Freight ITS project for the area surrounding the CSX Fairburn Intermodal Center is included in this Concept of Operations document.
