I-75 South Metro

      The I-75 South Metro Express Lanes are newly constructed reversible toll lanes that run 12 miles along I-75, from State Route 155 (McDonough Road) in Henry County north to State Route 138 (Stockbridge Highway) in Clayton County. These reversible managed toll lanes operate northbound in the morning toward Atlanta and southbound in the evening. The express lanes are designed to improve traffic flow, increase options for motorists and transit and registered vanpool customers, provide reliable trip times, create jobs and bring economic benefits to this region.
