Falcon Design has been providing the private developer of this project with surveying, hydrology and roadway design services. This project is scheduled to begin construction in 2022. The Western Parallel Connector is making progress after the state of Georgia and Atlanta Regional Commission have awarded $44.1 million to Henry County for its construction. These funds are sourced from the 2015 statewide gas tax increase. The Western Parallel Connector will be a new four-lane road connecting Hudson Bridge, Jodeco, and Jonesboro Roads. The project was first proposed in the mid-2000’s and will serve as an alternate route for interstate travel. New commercial opportunities are developing in the area such as the Jodeco South mixed-use development.
