"This is a day that will go down in history. Georgia 400 has been an economic powerhouse for the Buckhead and north Fulton areas and beyond for two decades." -- Christopher Tomlinson, SRTA Executive Director
GA 400 Tolls: An Atlanta Chapter Closed
In July 2012, Governor Deal announced that the state would pay off its bond debt and end tolls on GA 400 by December 2013. On Friday, November 22, 2013, Gov. Nathan Deal fulfilled his promise to end tolls on GA 400. Click here for more information on the GA 400 Tollway Demolition Project.
A Wise Investment
In the 1980s, metro Atlantans were asked to invest in a tollway that would redefine the region. Completed in 1993, the Georgia 400 extension has provided easy access to downtown Atlanta from north Fulton and Forsyth Counties, with almost 120,000 commuters using the road each weekday. The tollway contributed to incredible economic growth along the corridor. In 2010, the state decided to finish the road’s original design by extending the life of the tolls and funding new connecting ramps at I-85. Additionally, more than $60 million in additional transportation projects are being funded in the corridor to improve mobility. In recent years, tolls collected from GA 400 have funded 14 improvement projects, including expanding HERO trucks and Xpress transit service. Commuters are now benefitting from the improvement projects funded by toll reserves and have a toll-free facility to use.
