The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is conducting two multi-State corridor studies as directed by Section 1927 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU). Essentially this will result in a number of studies being completed for the two highway corridors. One links Augusta, GA, Macon, GA, Columbus, GA, Montgomery, AL and Natchez, MS. It is referred to in the statute as the 14th Amendment Highway. The other corridor links Savannah, GA, Augusta GA and Knoxville, TN. It is referred to in the statute as the 3rd Infantry Division Highway. Neither corridor has been designated as a future Interstate. The studies are examining a range of alternative alignments and design levels. The first phase of each study will result in a report to Congress describing the steps and estimated funding necessary to designate and construct a highway.
