Tolling Heads to Georgia Interstate

A toll lane is coming to a Georgia interstate highway -- a first for the state.

The lane will begin operations next summer, ad will operate through an automatic electronic tolling system.

"For the first time in Georgia, an interstate lane will have a toll, and the computerized price will change moment by moment, rising when congestion in the main lanes rises.

It's good news if you're a solo driver willing to pay to get to an appointment a little faster.

But it's bad news if you're in a two-person car pool used to a free HOV lane, because you'll be paying a toll, too."
