She wants to start cutting projects from the DOT’s books.
Georgia is about to undertake some painful project-cutting to fit its transportation program to its budget, state Department of Transportation Commissioner Gena Abraham told her board Monday as they met at a retreat in Macon.
A department that in reality has the money to work on about 270 projects a year has 1,470 active ones on its books and more than 9,000 planned, she said.
“We’re going to have to talk about projects coming off our books,” she said. “There’s no other way around it.”
I think that is an absolute necessity for the DOT to get its stuff in gear. The department is overworked, overfunded, under managed, and not grounded in reality.
It sounds like the Bush Administration.
