ATLANTA (AP) -- State transportation officials are planning new toll lanes on an interstate south of Atlanta, in Clayton and Henry counties.
Georgia Department of Transportation officials outlined the plans during a public meeting Tuesday in McDonough.
CBS Atlanta reports that the project calls for barrier-separated, reversible lanes along a 12-mile stretch of Interstate 75. The tolls would cover a stretch of I-75 from State Route 138 in Stockbridge to State Route 155 in McDonough.
The lanes would run northbound during the morning rush hour and southbound in the evening.
WSB-TV reports that it could cost motorists up to $6.50 each way to use the toll lanes, which will be optional.
