ATLANTA -- Drivers who take Ga. 400 to work or school will save 50 cents this morning, but they may be faced with a different problem: more traffic than usual.
The tolls are gone, and because of this, Georgia Department of Transportation officials expect an increase in traffic. Drivers who once avoided Ga. 400 are now expected to flock to the busy highway.
