About the Project

What is Decatur Direct?

Decatur Direct is the name for the proposed extension of Ameiplex Parkway. The new road—connecting Ameriplex Parkway to Southport Road—will be just over three miles.

Improving Accessibility

The roadway itself will be attractive, with a median to separate eastbound and westbound lanes. It will create new recreational options—including walking and biking paths—for residents of the area.

Economic Development

While we expect the project to have a positive effect on economic development, most new businesses planning to locate in the area would go through a public approval process.
