TheÂ Department of Transportation, along with the Georgia DOT, have proposed aÂ $184.1 million grant to add express lanes toÂ State Route 400, used by Atlanta commuters.
TheÂ Infrastructure for Rebuilding America grant would provide forÂ 17 miles ofÂ two-lane, bidirectional managed lanes fromÂ I-285, to McGinnis Ferry Road, toÂ McFarland Parkway, the DOT said Friday.
GDOT expects the investment to reduce commute delay by more thanÂ 19,000 hours per day across SR 400 by 2030.
DOT Secretary Elaine Chao and GDOT Commissioner Russell McMurry areÂ overseeing the proposed effort.
The SR 400 effort supports GDOT’sÂ Major Mobility Investment ProgramÂ which aims to mitigate traffic congestion problems.
