The agency will close the Northwest Corridor Express Lanes on I-75 and I-575 in Cobb and Cherokee counties 11:30 a.m. Tuesday. They will be closed until further notice.

In addition, SRTA has canceled the state’s Xpress bus service on Tuesday. The agency will monitor weather conditions and assess whether to resume transit service on Wednesday.
