Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle is calling on state transportation officials to add reversible lanes to north Georgia's congested Interstate 85. He would like to add movable barriers to the highway that would shift lanes to accommodate heavy traffic.
Athens area officials plan to finalize a transportation wish list Thursday. This wish list is due to the region's Transportation Roundtable by August 15th. That group will then review all wish-lists for the northeast Georgia region and pass a final list on to the Georgia Department of Transportation.
