Toll Lanes Could Be Extended to Hamilton Mill, Chateau Elan
The High Occupancy Toll or HOT lanes currently end at Old Peachtree Road.
The I-85 toll lanes may eventually be extended past the Mall of Georgia in Buford all the way to Hamilton Road or even Chateau Elan, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
The AJC reports state transportation leaders are in favor of extending the toll lanes in Gwinnett County. Construction could begin in 2017 if approved.
As part of the project, an additional lane would be constructed to avoid losing capacity in the free lanes, WSBradio.com reported.
