What does beyond STIP mean on project construction date on fact sheet page 3?

Heh.  It means it isn't funded for construction currently.

What I figured.  Like everything else, it has to wait for opportunity.

I see the current I-285 c/d roadway at I-75 near Smyrna, is the preexisting freeway that always was I-285 prior to the interchange upgrade.  The current freeway is new and the engineers left the original freeway to facilitate movements between I-285 and I-75 as well as nearby freeway ramps

Interesting redo, I must say.

For several of the freeway-to-freeway interchanges in Metro Atlanta, there was a similar upgrade where there's clear evidence that what is now a ramp used to be the mainline.

Has anyone else seen what Atlanta/Sandy Springs is planning to do to the Johnson Ferry/Mt. Vernon area?

The short version is, they're getting rid of the one-ways between where those cross and Roswell Road to the west, and replacing them with two parallel roads that do not intersect.  The parking lot east of the library will be turned into a connector road between them.  So you'll be driving on Johnson Ferry and suddenly it'll turn into Mt. Vernon, or vice-versa.  As weird as this sounds, it's still better than the alternative that they were considering, which involved two roundabouts.

Seems like a decent idea. I prefer the compressed alternate.
