GA 400 Tolls to Become History Week Before Thanksgiving

End date set for Thursday, Nov. 21.

Cumming and Forsyth commuters who use GA 400 take note: Back in March we told you that the tolls are coming down in November, and now we have more details.

To lessen the impact on Thanksgiving travel, the tolls will end Thursday, Nov. 21, weather permitting, one week before the holiday, according to PeachPass.com.

While demolition plans are still being finalized, "preliminary plans call for all GA 400 traffic to shift into three general purpose lanes where motorists currently use the electronic tolling lanes," said a newsletter from Peach Pass.

Construction will begin in October for the traffic shift. No heavy work is expected during the winter holidays. Actual demolition of the tolls will take place January 2014 through May. Once the structure is down, traffic will shift back over.

What are your thoughts about the GA 400 tolls being removed? Tells us in comments.

They should hand out sledge hammers to the public on that last day. The thing will be a pile of dust in 10 minutes.
