Proposed new express toll lanes in the top-end Perimeter area of North Fulton and DeKalb counties are the subject of meetings in the coming weeks at two Fulton County schools and a DeKalb County homeowners group.

Meetings are set for 6:30 to 8 p.m. Monday, Jan. 14, at Dunwoody Springs Elementary School, 8100 Roberts Drive, and Wednesday, Jan. 16, at Riverwood International Charter School, 5900 Raider Drive NW, both in Sandy Springs.

The Dunwoody Homeowners Association is to take up the issue from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 3, at the North DeKalb Cultural Arts Center, 5339 Chamblee Dunwoody Road, Dunwoody.

Representatives of the Georgia Department of Transportation have been invited to discuss the Major Mobility Investment Program project. Express lanes along I-285 and Ga. 400 would be similar to the Northwest Corridor Express Lanes on I-75 and I-575 that opened in September.

Official, public information open houses will not be held until later this year, according to GDOT. Information: https://bit.ly/2CHeWxG
