State transportation officials are planning new toll lanes on an interstate south of Atlanta, in Clayton and Henry counties. Georgia Department of Transportation officials outlined the plans during a public meeting Tuesday in McDonough.
Federal authorities have approved Gov. Nathan Deal's request that tolls be lowered on Interstate 85 during non-peak hours. It's the latest step in efforts to improve the traffic flow in the so-called HOT lanes on I-85 in parts of Gwinnett and DeKalb counties.
