As The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported recently, state and local officials are studying possible solutions to traffic and safety concerns on I-85 from the Perimeter to I-985 in Gwinnett County.
The possible solutions include additional toll lanes, public transportation, trucks-only lanes, interchange improvements and carpooling, among other things.
The study is expected to take at least three years. But Gwinnett County and the Georgia Department of Transportation are seeking public input now, before they settle on solutions to study further. They held a series of public meetings to solicit input. They’re also using an online survey to gather opinion through Feb. 25.
