I-85 express lanes FAQ's

I-85 express lanes FAQ's

ATLANTA -- If you commute on I-85 you have probably already seen the new signs going up to mark express toll lanes. A lot of people are asking questions about how they will work. We try to answer some of those questions with help from the State Road and Tollway Authority (SRTA).

Q: When will the new express lanes be open?

A: The SRTA, which manages the lanes, says they should be open by the end of summer. Hopefully they will be completed by the end of August but it may be September before they are open.

Q: How will the express lanes work?

A: Everyone who is planning to use the toll lanes will have to get a Peach Pass from the SRTA.
If you have three or more people in your car you won't pay anything. If you have one or two people in your car you will have to pay a toll that will be determined by the amount of traffic on the highway.
You won't be able to use the express lanes without a Peach Pass.

Gwinnett Commissioners may postpone airport vote

Gwinnett Commissioners may postpone airport vote

LAWRENCEVILLE --  A decision on whether to allow ticketed passenger service at Briscoe Field may have to wait a little longer.

A Gwinnett Board of Commissioners votes is set for 2 p.m. Tuesday, but a resolution may be introduced to delay the vote so that more residents can voice their opinions.

The issue at hand is whether to begin to allow larger passenger planes, seating up to 140, to fly in and out of Briscoe Field, which currently serves only coporate jets and small commercial aircraft.

Commissioner John Heard, who is scheduled to introduce the resolution, opposes allowing large passenger planes into the airport.
