GDOT Is Betting on Express Lanes as It Prepares to Open the $226 Million I-75 South Metro

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution advances next week’s opening of the I-75 South Metro Express Lanes project, reporting, “Express lanes — the state calls them ‘express lanes,’ regular people call them ‘toll lanes’ — are GDOT’s answer to the mess you confront on the roads every day. Commuters from Cobb, Cherokee and Bartow counties have watched the 30-mile Northwest Corridor project unspool down I-75 — more reversible toll lanes at a cost of $834 million that will open next year. After that: toll lanes on the top-end Perimeter and up Ga. 400 through Fulton and Forsyth counties.”
