ATLANTA -- The Georgia Department of Transportation is considering adding express toll lanes to I-75 in Henry and Clayton counties.

The lanes would be reversible to add more lanes for traffic heading north toward Atlanta during the morning rush hour and south in the afternoons.

The proposed 75 Express Lanes Project would add barrier-separated toll lanes along I-75 from SR155 to SR138 in Henry and Clayton counties.

Lanes would be tolled on a variable pricing system -- just as they are on a stretch of I-85 -- meaning that when congestion and demand is heaviest, tolls would be higher.

GDOT has scheduled public hearing open house meetings Tuesday and Thursday to discuss the plans.

The Tuesday meeting is at Eagles Landing High School in McDonough from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday's meeting is at Hilton Garden Inn, 95 Highway 81 West, McDonough, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
