Gwinnett County plans to use tolls to pay for at least part of the cost of an 8.3-mile extension to Sugarloaf Parkway, and this may not be the last time drivers in Georgia pay for new or expanded roads as they use them.
It certainly isn’t the first. The Georgia 400 extension inside I-285 was paid for by tolls, and some lanes along other interstates feeding into Atlanta have variable tolls. Tolls have received a mixed reception from drivers in the past. Drivers don’t seem to mind, at least not as much, when the toll pays for new roads or at least new capacity.
