The Georgia Department of Transportation has scheduled a public hearing to discuss extending the I-85 HOT lanes another 10 miles northward.
The hearing will take place March 28 at 4 p.m. in Braselton. The meeting will be held in the community room of the Braselton Municipal building located at 4982 Highway 53, Braselton.
The GDOT wants to extend the toll lanes from Old Peachtree Road near Suwanee to Hamilton Mill Road, in the Dacula and Buford areas or possibly Chateau Elan near Braselton. As part of the project, an additional lane would be constructed to avoid losing capacity in the free lanes.
