GDOT Scraps Optional Toll Lanes Project

ATLANTA (AP) The state Department of Transportation’s board has withdrawn a plan to add optional toll lanes alongside interstate highways in Cobb and Cherokee counties north of Atlanta.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported board member Brandon Beach said Dec. 14 the department would look at other methods for building the billion-dollar project.

The project would have built two reversible toll lanes alongside Interstate Highway 75 from I-285 to I-575 and one reversible toll lane each along I-75 up to Hickory Grove Road and along I-575 up to Sixes Road.

The toll price was to fluctuate with congestion in the main lanes to keep the toll lane free-flowing. Unlike the HOT lane on I-85, it was to be financed and built by private companies, who would be repaid by toll revenues.
