I-75 South Potential Managed Lanes

This study examined the feasibility of implementing priced managed lanes to add capacity to the existing I-75 South corridor between the southern end of I-285 and State Route 16 near the City of Jackson. The study team analyzed stated preference surveys, traffic and revenue data as well as existing conditions to develop 8 alternatives for increasing mobility along this corridor efficiently.

Georgia 400 Institutional Analysis

This study will examine the feasibility of moving from a fixed-toll system to a variable-toll system on the tolled portion of Georgia 400. The study team will analyze current traffic conditions, queuing times at the Toll Plaza, and market survey responses to assess whether moving to the variable-toll system would mitigate the bottleneck at the Toll Plaza.

Savannah Northwest Toll Expressway

This study examined the feasibility of implementing a new alignment near State Route 21 and the Port of the Savannah. This new alignment was analyzed to determine if Truck Only Toll lanes would be a feasible solution to the congestion or if other alternatives may prove viable. The study team used truck surveys and motorist stated preference surveys as well as analyses of the existing conditions to assist in this feasibility test.

I-75/575 HOV/BRT Value Pricing Corridor and Feasibility Study

SRTA evaluated the following as part of this study: the public perception of tolls in the I-75 corridor, understand the toll revenues from pricing the proposed I-75 HOV lanes and potential truck only toll lanes, and learn and exchange information with other metropolitan areas as they implement HOT lanes and BRT. This evaluation study ran parallel to the I-75 HOV/BRT environmental impact statement process. The study was funded in part with a $400,000 federal grant and was completed in December 2005.

HOT/TOT Study

The High Occupancy Toll (HOT) Lanes Feasibility Study sought to identify corridors where HOT Lanes Facilities would provide congestion relief and enhance safety and efficiency to justify their installation in the Atlanta Metropolitan Area.

The Truck Only Toll (TOT) Lanes Feasibility Study sought to examine whether the concept of optional truck only facilities would provide congestion relief and enhance safety and efficiency to justify their installation in the Atlanta Metropolitan Area. Both the HOT and TOT Studies were finalized as of July 2005. Click here for a copy of the TOT Final Report . Click here for a copy of the HOT Final Report .
