There are now going to be tolls on I-75 south. But the good thing is these aren’t the same kinds of tolls that the State, in it’s infinite wisdom, put on I-85. Instead these are new lanes being built to accommodate the swelling traffic needs and provide some relief.
Another difference is that these lanes are reversible. Which will be similar to the lanes up around the DC area that are built in the middle and change direction depending on time of day and traffic needs.
So two new lanes in between the existing lanes that will change direction depending on the needs of the interstate. Having been stuck on 75 between McDonough Road to state Route 138, i like the sound of this.
However, it does make me wonder. Is this how the state will build things from now on, or is there a better way to expand capacity within our fiscal constraints?
