ATLANTA -- Gov. Nathan Deal is looking whether the cost of the Express Lanes along Interstate 85 is prohibitive to drivers.

Thousands of Metro Atlanta drivers have express frustration over the cost and organization of the new toll lanes, which opened Saturday.

The governor said officials have already determined that more entrances and exits are needed for the lanes. Deal said he hopes those changes will be addressed quickly.

11Alive News has been looking into both issues since early summer.

The $60 million Express Lanes project was approved before Deal took office.
