Separate truck lanes proposed for metro Atlanta
In the wake of several horrific truck crashes on metro Atlanta expressways in recent weeks, the State Road and Tollway Authority has released a study proposing three options for trucks-only lanes on the expressways. One option would include two trucks-only toll lanes 24/7 on I-285, I-75 and I-85. The second option would put trucks in the HOV lanes designed for cars during certain hours. The third option would convert the HOV lanes to truck toll lanes 24/7. See AJC article link and below.
