By David Pendered

Metro Atlanta voters today can see the full list of transportation projects that their local elected officials will consider for inclusion on the sales tax referendum in 2012.

The list of projects was released this morning to the Atlanta Region Transportation Roundtable from the state Department of Transportation. The roundtable is comprised of elected officials from the 10 metro counties that are to vote on the penny sales tax in July 2012.

The roundtable is to cull the list of $29.8 billion worth of projects to an amount of about $8 billion, which is the amount the penny sales tax for transportation is expected to generate over the course of a decade in a 10-county metro area.
