Proposal for privately funded truck toll lanes on Atlanta expressways
The Georgia DOT is consideirng a proposal for a private consortium to add toll lanes for trucks to portions of I-285 and I-20 in metro Atlanta. The proposal would have the investment banking firm Goldman Sachs, the engineering firm PBS&J and the law firm McGuire Woods to help develop and finance a possible expansion of I-285 and I-20. These private truck lanes would be completed by 2014, around the same time as the I-75 project that just went under contract and has truck lanes. The propsoal would affect I-285’s western quadrant and I-20 to Thornton Road.
It is a creative, intriguing possibility for separating truck and passenger traffic on the state’s most congested roadways where we have seen numerous catastrophic crashes.
