GA 400 Toll Lanes Headed Your Way
The Georgia DOT is taking the first step toward installing new Tolls Lanes on GA 400 north of I-285 - with the "GA 400Express Lanes Feasibility Study".
The toll lanes already installed on GA 400 (south of I-285) were scheduled to be removed after 20 years, but in2009 the state decided to keep the tolls in place.
The recently installed new Tolls Lanes on I-85 have angered many I-85 commuters.
Three information meetings about the GA-400 Toll Lanes are scheduled in March 13-20 from 5-7 PM (when mostGA-400 commuters are still commuting). Dates and locations are listed below.
The project is listed by the DOT under "GA 400 improvements".
You can submit comments using the attached form or the survey below - the form must be received beforeMarch 30.
