For the first time, several Central Georgia governments are coming together for a development project they expect will benefit all of them.
They plan to grow business along, what they are calling, the "I-75 Corridor."
Community leaders say this will bring more people and business to the area.
If you get off the exit at Russell Parkway or Housers Mill Road, it will take you a few miles to find the nearest stores.
"Our goal is, if we can create a vision for the area, so that maybe we can keep it from being hodgepodges of gas stations and convenience stores," says Jay Flesher, Flint Energies' Economic and Community Manager.
Flesher is one of the people spearheading a group that aims to bring more business to the interstate.
