With Interstate 69 construction on the horizon, Morgan County needed to adapt and plan for the interstate’s impacts. To assist in this effort, HWC was retained to lead the county in updating its comprehensive plan and thoroughfare plan. The thoroughfare plan included roadway classification updates throughout the county reflecting differences in corridor access and traffic volumes. This planning effort also included the creation of an overlay district ordinance along the Interstate 69 corridor to establish land use and development standards.
