Public Information Open House Meetings Scheduled for I-85 HOT Lanes Expansion


The Georgia Department of Transportation is seeking public input into the planning process for the I-85 Express Lanes Project. This proposed project would result in the construction of two new lanes (one in each direction) along I-85 in Gwinnett County from Old Peachtree Road to Hamilton Mill Road, expanding the existing high occupancy toll (HOT) lane system by about ten miles.  The purpose of this new managed lane project is to leverage variable rate travel pricing to provide transit, freight and automobile commuters with a more reliable, free-flowing commute option.

The following public information open house meetings have been scheduled to discuss the project:

March 21, 2013

4:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Gwinnett Center – Atrium Gallery
(Lower level)

March 28, 2013

4:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Braselton Police and Municipal Court Building – Community Room
(Enter from rear of the building)
