GA 400 Tolls Extended 10 Years | News
ATLANTA -- The State Road and Toll Authority has voted to extend the tolls on Georgia 400 another 10 years.
Friday's 3-1 vote extends the tolls until January 2020, instead of removing them next year.
The Department of Transportation voted similarly earlier Friday morning.
Officials said 20 years ago that the toll would be removed when
its bonds were paid off.
SRTA Director Gena Evans and Bert Brantley, a spokesman for Gov. Sonny Perdue, say much has changed in those 20 years, including explosive population growth in the area served by the highway.
Funds collected from the tolls will be used on projects like improving the the GA 400/I-85 interchange.
