Variable Speed Limits (VSL)
Slow Down to Get There Faster
Georgia DOT continues to look for cost-effective, innovative ways to address traffic
in the metro Atlanta region. One of the most congested roads in metro Atlanta is
the northern half (called the “Top End”) of I-285. The “Top End” is the 36 miles
on I-285 within Fulton, Cobb and DeKalb counties, north of the I-20 interchanges.
To help relieve congestion and improve safety on that corridor, the Department implemented
Variable Speed Limits (VSL) on the Top End of I-285.
