Forsyth County Manager Kevin Tanner has been named to the State Road and Tollway Authority (SRTA) Board of Directors. Tanner’s appointment was made by the Speaker of the Georgia House of Representatives.
“We are excited to have Mr. Tanner join the SRTA Board of Directors,” said SRTA Executive Director Chris Tomlinson. “His more than 30 years of experience in government, which includes his leadership in transportation for the Georgia House, will be invaluable to SRTA as we work to continue to keep Georgia moving.”
During his time in the Georgia legislature, Tanner served as the Chair of the House Transportation committee, where he sponsored several bills that helped advance transit and transportation programs, as well as projects, throughout the state.
“I am honored to have been asked to serve on the SRTA Board of Directors,” said Tanner. “Transportation is important to not only the metro Atlanta area, but the entire state. I look forward to working with Mr. Tomlinson and the SRTA Board to meet the needs of our residents.”
About the State Road and Tollway Authority (SRTA)
SRTA is a state-level, independent authority created to operate tolled transportation facilities within Georgia and act as the transportation financing arm for the state. SRTA manages the collection of tolls on Georgia’s Express Lanes System through the use of Peach Pass. In 2017, SRTA combined with the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority (GRTA) to jointly provide the services of both state authorities. The GRTA board continues to oversee developments of regional impact, air quality reporting and regional transportation plan approval.
