GDOT I-85 Express Extension Breaks Ground

Atlanta Business Chronicle covers the groundbreaking ceremony for the project to extend I-85 Express Lanes by ten miles. “After initial resistance to the toll lanes when they opened in 2011 from drivers objecting to the tolls, the ability to drive in less traffic during busy times of day in exchange for a toll has become increasingly popular,” the newspaper reports. SRTA, which manages toll operations for the express lanes, was represented at the event by its executive director, Chris Tomlinson.
