Ga. motorists show little interest in toll lanes

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia motorists don't seem to be paying much attention yet to what will be the largest highway construction project in state history.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the state is a few months way from signing a final contract for $840 million to add optional toll lanes to Interstates 75 and 575 in Cobb and Cherokee counties.

The Georgia Department of Transportation website only received 10 public comments about the proposed bidders last month. Less than 50 people attended two public information sessions in July.

Lois Brett of Woodstock says she hadn't heard about the30 miles of toll lanes and probably wouldn't use them unless she needed to get around a wreck.

Kennesaw State University students Jasmine Neville and Tia Mitchem said they couldn't afford the toll lanes.
