For many years local elected officials, the state legislative delegation, and community leaders worked diligently to get Richard Russell Parkway extended to Interstate 75 and provide the Warner Robins area with a second interchange to serve the City and Robins AFB. The project became a reality in the spring of 2002 when the Georgia Department of Transportation awarded a construction contract for the Parkway's extension. During the spring of 2003, with construction work progressing toward an October 31, 2004, completion date, the Mayor and City Council decided to explore alternative development concepts for the Parkway.
The goal of this document is to highlight a number of different scenario's and potential directions of growth and marketing. Each of the ideas can be adjusted and modified according to the communities needs and budget. A section of strategies for implementations has been added to assist the City of Warner Robins in prioritizing their needs and accomplishing their goals. It is hoped that the vision of the community becomes realized to create an entry corridor which is beautiful, memorable, and functional.
