Centerline Mileage Validation for Optimized Funding/LMIG

November 7, 2017  |  Georgia Department of Transportation

Optimize funding by validating centerline mileage for the Local Maintenance and Improvement Grant (LMIG) program.

As a friendly reminder, the next LMIG reporting season will open from mid-February through mid-April, 2018.

LMIG provides funds for local governments to improve local roadway networks. The funding source for LMIG is a percentage of the state motor vehicle fuel tax. Use of LMIG funds requires adherence to adequate roadway standards, accounting practices, and applicable transportation plans. Click here for more details.

Every local government is encouraged to validate centerline mileage annually for LMIG. 

Georgia State Codes §32-4-41 and §32-4-91 require each county and city government, respectively, to notify GDOT within 90 days of adding, modifying, or abandoning a local, public road. 

Changes to the local road network that are reported by December 31, 2017, will be considered during the 2018 LMIG reporting season. Utilize the Local Road Activity (LRA) form to report changes to the local roadway network. Centerline mileage is a key component of the formula used to calculate LMIG appropriations for each local government.

In February of 2018, formal notification regarding the LMIG reporting season will be mailed to the highest elected official representing each local government. 

The LMIG process is summarized below.
