Concept

This stage of the process – development of the Interchange Modification Report (IMR) – builds upon many previous efforts, namely the Reclaiming Old West Broad Street:  I-16 Exit Ramp Removal Project, completed in July 2012.  This previous study included very intense and highly interactive public engagement.  In particular, three alternatives were developed during this process and shared with the community for their feedback.  From this process, the alternative shown below, adopted in the Civic Master Plan, is now moving forward for further analysis and development.

After reviewing the two options below, we invite you to provide your feedback via one of two ways:

Civic Master Plan

Local Street Network Options

Two options for modifying access to I-16 have been developed for the Interchange Modification Report (IMR) based on the Civic Master Plan. Both options include new ramps to US 17 at Oglethorpe Avenue, which connects with I-16. These new ramps would allow drivers to both enter and exit the highway system at Oglethorpe Avenue from US 17 northbound and southbound (current access is limited to an exit from US 17 southbound or entrance to US 17 northbound).

Option 1 (below) includes modified access by providing ramps to Cohen Street. Option 2 (below) maximizes the land area returned for new streets and development in the area.

I-16 Option 1

Option 1: Modified Interstate Access

I-16 Option 2

Option 2: Removal of Interstate Ramps

We want to hear what you think about the two options above. You can provide your feedback in either of the following ways:
