Atlas has been privileged to work as an extension of GDOT’s staff and assist with project management on the federally funded Transportation Enhancement program since the fall of 2009. Initially, when awarded the contract, Atlas collected the project files from the Department’s District Offices, reviewed the plans and project documents and created a database and schedule for the existing 330 projects. In 2010, Atlas worked with GDOT’s staff on a ‘new call’ for TE projects. This call added an additional 170 TE projects.

Atlas’ statewide network has provided efficiency on this program. When requested, Atlas’ liaisons have been able to meet with GDOT district staff, and project sponsors and their consultants with very short notice. The liaisons have assisted with plan review, right-of-way and utility issues and construction concerns. In this 30-month period, the following project milestones have been accomplished:
