74/171FAN:  HOT lanes could soon be coming to I-85 in Gwinnett County to help those that want to see the Gwinnett Braves pay a toll to get there faster :-D(this could be a part of it)

Man, there are already like 14 - 16 lanes through there.

The article said that they are tolling (converting) existing HOV lanes.  So, there should be no new lanes there.

I heard about that on the news. I don't like that, tolling lanes built with public monies. I'm not sure if anyone would pay for using the HOV lanes, when some are using them illegally already.

Be well,


Experience elsewhere indicates that:

A) violation rate drops with converting HOV to HO/T.

B) there are some people who would pay a toll to avoid congestion, because they value their time greater than that of the toll.

HO/T lanes include variable-rate pricing...which (most of the time) guarnatees free-flow in the HO/T lanes.  HOVs of course can ride for free and not have to worry about the toll at all.
