This project begins along I-75 south of Atlanta at SR 155 / McDonough Road and ends at SR 138 / Stockbridge Hwy, and includes approximately 12 miles of managed lanes. The proposed project consists of the addition of two reversible express lanes located within the median of I-75, to be managed by a variable priced tolling system. These lanes will be 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 the residents of this region.

What is a Managed Lane System?
Over the past 20 years, the total number of miles traveled across the country has grown by more than 70 percent – yet adding capacity in the form of new lanes has increased by less than 1 percent. The demand for reduced congestion and greater mobility is felt across the country but no more so than here in Atlanta. The Georgia Department of Transportation is moving towards implementation of a Managed Lanes System Plan throughout metro Atlanta as an innovative solution to managing congestion and providing valuable travel choices for commuters and travelers.
Managed lanes are limited access lanes that provide motorists another travel option to the free general purpose lanes that exist today. These are tolled lanes designed to maintain free-flowing traffic, even during morning and evening rush hours. When the general purpose lanes are congested, motorists have the choice to use the less-congested managed lanes to save trip time. Managed lanes can provide drivers with more reliable trip times on those days when they need it!
