Collection Description

Historical Note

The Atlanta Coalition on the Transportation Crisis was an umbrella organization comprised of many community-based organizations opposed to the construction of Interstate 485 and the Stone Mountain Tollway.

The organization garnered the support of community leaders such as Jimmy Carter and Andrew Young, and was ultimately able to stop construction of the proposed highways.
