Last week Friday, the GA 400 Toll Plaza became an active construction zone as the first phase of a four-phase GA Tollway Demolition Project gets underway.
Portable message signs have been placed in the GA 400 corridor to alert motorists of the pre-construction activities for the ending of tolls on GA 400 the week before Thanksgiving, weather permitting.
THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW:
No "Green Light" in Peach Pass Lanes -- In preparation for construction-related activities, motorists will no longer see a green, yellow or red light when cruising through the Peach Pass lanes. Drivers should keep moving and tolls will continue to be automatically deducted from their accounts.
Signage Removal/Modification Begins -- Also on October 25, crews began removing or modifying toll-related signage from areas approaching the GA 400 Toll Plaza. A total of 66 signs will be removed or modified before and after toll collection ends.
Keep Your Peach Pass-- Your Peach Pass account stays active, and is only charged when you use it. So even though the GA 400 tolls are ending, be sure to keep your Peach Pass for use when you need to bypass traffic using the existing I-85 Express Lanes, or the planned I-75 Express Lanes south of Atlanta (coming in 2016); and I-75/575 Express Lanes in the Northwest Corridor (coming in 2018).
