Home -> Travelers -> Express Lanes

Georgia Express Lanes are optional priced lanes that run alongside existing interstates in some of the most congested corridors around metro Atlanta. These lanes provide a choice for drivers to bypass congestion when desired, offer a clear path for transit operators and add an alternative to the roads that exist today. Express Lanes are intended to provide a mobility choice and more reliable travel times in peak periods for motorists and bus patrons. The result is a network of lanes that provide more reliable and predictable trip times. All Georgia Express Lanes rely on variable-price tolling to maintain free-flowing travel even during peak travel times. Express lanes are already open on I-85 and I-75, but more corridors are in development and in different configurations.

      The State Transportation Board, and the Board of Directors of the State Road and Tollway Authority (SRTA) have approved the sale of Grant Anticipation Revenue Vehicle (GARVEE) bonds to fund early acquisition of needed right of way on the Revive 285 project.

The project will also include improvements to both the I-85 and I-75 interchanges, as well as collector distributor lanes.  Revive 285 is part of an overall major program to bring mobility improvements to this heavily congested route in the metro Atlanta area.
