ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Transportation planners want to know how you think transportation in the Albany area needs to be overhauled.  

They're updating the Long Range Transportation Plan that will recommend potential improvements to highways, railways, bridges, interchanges and intersections.

Tuesday night the community was invited to give their input on what what the priorities should be.

"This plan is updated every five years so there's time to evaluate what we have now compared to what we had five years ago and just address all those needs and try to put together a plan that will work efficiently for the community," said Transportation Planner David Hamilton.  

The Dougherty Area Regional Transportation Study covers plans through the 2035 and also covers things such as sidewalks and bike trails. A second public input meeting will be held in the fall.
