The Georgia Department of Transportation has scheduled two public hearings in March to discuss extending the I-85 HOT lanes another 10 miles northward.
The first hearing will be held March 21 at 4 p.m. at the Gwinnett Center Atrium located at 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway in Duluth. The second 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 is considering extending the toll lanes from Old Peachtree Road near Suwanee to Hamilton Mill Road, in the Dacula and Buford area or possibly extending the lanes to Chateau Elan near Braselton. As part of the project, an additional lane would be constructed to avoid losing capacity in the free lanes.
