The I-75 corridor connecting Macon and Atlanta is one of the busiest interstates in the country. Trucks travel along the route to carry goods to and from the Port of Savannah. Traffic is expected to double, even triple, in the coming years as the port expands. The state hopes to mitigate congestion and make the interstate safer by building truck-only lanes along 40 miles of I-75. If successful, it’ll be the largest project of its kind in the U.S. and the most expensive, too.

AJC Reporter Andria Simmons brings out that the two-billion dollar project may take upwards of ten-years before real progress will be made.

We speak with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution transportation reporter Andria Simmons and truck driver Herschel Evans about the project and whether it’s worth the cost.
