GA-400 Toll Set to Come down

Scott Monge

According to AJC.Com, The 50-cent toll on Ga. 400 goes away soon, but in a classic case of “be careful what you wish for,” drivers may face a spike in traffic on the popular route.

According to the State Road and Tollway Authority, traffic on Ga. 400, which currently serves around 120,000 drivers a day, may increase as much as 18 percent.

The Ga. 400 toll debate has seen a great deal of controversy in recent years, most notably in 2010 when then-Governor Sonny Perdue made the decision to keep the toll in place despite having promised that the toll would go away once the road was paid for.

In 2012, Governor Nathan Deal reversed Perdue’s decision, paving the way for the ending of the toll and the removal of the toll plaza, which will be demolished next year.

What remains to be seen, of course, is whether there will be a jump in the amount of traffic on Ga. 400 after the toll goes away, and if so, if there will be an increase in congestion and motor vehicle wrecks.
