It has been three years since Gwinnett County commuters got their first taste of the Interstate 85 Express Lanes. Now, transportation officials are planning to add an additional 10 miles of toll lanes in Gwinnett County.
On Monday, the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) hosted an open house at the Gwinnett Center in Duluth to provide details on the project that will extend the toll lanes from Old Peachtree Road to Hamilton Mill Road, adding a new lane in each direction between Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road and Hamilton Mill Road. The $110 million project will also add auxiliary lanes along southbound I-85 between the Mall of Georgia exit (exit 115) and Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road (exit 111) and along northbound I-85 from exit 115 to the planned exit at Gravel Springs Road. The auxiliary lanes, according to the GDOT, will be constructed between on- and off-ramps to make merging into traffic safer and improve traffic flow. Read more on GwinnettDailyPost.com.
