Federal agencies have taken final actions by issuing licenses, permits 
and approvals for the following highway project in the State of 
Georgia: The I-75 Express lanes project consists of constructing 
managed lanes from the SR 155 (Zack Hinton Parkway, South) interchange 
in Henry County north to the SR 138 (Stockbridge Highway) interchange 
located in metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia. The Selected Alternative will 
construct managed lanes in Henry County at the I-75 Bridge over SR 155 
and terminate in Clayton County approximately 600 feet south of the I-
75 southbound on-ramp from SR 139 and at SR 139 on I-675. From SR 155 
to approximately one mile south of Mt. Carmel Road, a single reversible 
lane will be constructed. The single lane will then transition to two 
reversible lanes, which will continue to the northern terminus of the 
facility. Intelligent Transportation System infrastructure will be 
constructed to support the usage of the managed lanes. The facility 
will include improvements of approximately 17.94 miles on I-75. 
Congestion on this facility will be managed by electronic toll lane 
(ETL). The purpose of the project is listed below:
 Consistency with regional transportation planning initiatives.
 Provide reliable trip times and mobility
 Improve travel choices
 Expedite project delivery through the use of tolling for 
financing (construction financing implications)

accessibility
