ATLANTA (WXIA) -- Drivers who take Ga. 400 to work or school will save 50 cents this morning, but they may be faced with a different problem: more traffic than usual.
The tolls are gone, and because of this, Georgia Department of Transportation officials expect an increase in traffic. Drivers who once avoided Ga. 400 are now expected to flock to the busy highway.
All Ga. 400 traffic will now move in what used to be cruise lanes. There are currently three lanes instead of the usual two. The speedlimit through the former toll plaza is 45 mph.
