The mission of the Department of Transportation Planning is to make transportation infrastructure investments in Henry County on the basis of a citizen-accepted and county-adopted long-range transportation plan.  Towards this end, we develop and periodically update a Comprehensive Transportation Plan.  This plan lists all the major transportation projects Henry County intends to undertake to meet the transportation needs now and in the future.  In addition to a transportation plan, the Department plans to undertake various other transportation plans and planning studies.  They may include transit plan, trails plan, freight study, etc.

The Department of Transportation Planning was created in December 2019 in light of Henry County’s tremendous growth in population and the resulting increased traffic congestion.  As such, we are a very new department.  Our mission is to collaborate with the County’s Transportation Department, Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) Department, and the Transit Department to meet Henry County citizens’ transportation needs now and in the future.
