Georgia's plan to end toll collection and demolish the toll booths along Georgia 400 will be the topic of discussion at four upcoming public information meetings.
The State Road and Tollway Authority has scheduled the meetings to give residents information on plans to end the practice of collecting tolls and to remove the booths along Georgia 400 in Buckhead.
The state is set to pay off its bond debt and halt collecting tolls on the state highway by the end of the year. The ending date is tentatively set for the week before Thanksgiving.
The meetings are scheduled for:
- Tuesday, Sept. 24: 4-7 p.m. at the Greater North Fulton Chamber of Commerce, 11605 Haynes Bridge Road, Ste. 100, Alpharetta.
- Thursday, Oct. 3: 5-8 p.m. at Central Park Recreation Center, 2300 Keith Bridge Road, Cumming
- Thursday, Oct. 17: 4-7 p.m. at Piney Grove Middle School, 8135 Majors Road, Cumming.
- Thursday, Oct. 24: 4-7 p.m. at Crowne Plaza Ravinia, 4355 Ashford Dunwoody Road, Atlanta.
SRTA notes the cost of the project is $4.5 million, and $3.5 million of the cost covers construction associated with the demolition.
Newnan-based Southeastern Site Development, Inc. was tapped to perform the project, which will be managed by the Georgia Department of Transportation.
