The new High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes opened on I-85 this weekend. These new lanes are part of a $110 million Congestion Reduction Demonstration Program grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Transportation. The project has converted 16 miles of High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes to HOT lanes on I-85 from Old Peachtree Road in Gwinnett County to Chamblee Tucker Road in DeKalb County. A toll is required for solo drivers and two-person car pools to use the lanes and the toll fee is determined based on the rise and fall of congestion.
A Peach Pass is required to use the HOT lanes and drivers can acquire it here. You can learn more about the HOT lanes in the article below.
