• GA 400 Toll Demolition Schedule

    Updated:

    Public Open Houses on GA 400 Toll Demolition Project Scheduled
    Four Sessions in Fulton and Forsyth Counties in September and October

    The State Road and Tollway Authority (SRTA) will hold four public information sessions in
    September and October 2013 to provide details on the ending of tolls and toll booth demolition at the GA 400
    Toll Plaza.

    In July 2012, Governor Deal announced that the state would pay off its bond debt and end tolls on GA 400 by
    December 2013. The ending date for toll collection has been tentatively set for the week before Thanksgiving,
    weather permitting.

    During the four open house meetings, the public can learn more about preliminary plans for the end of toll
    collections and the demolition of the toll booths on GA 400. There will be no formal presentations, but
    transportation representatives will be on hand to share information.  Scheduled meetings are as follows:

    In addition to Georgia 400 demolition project details, meeting attendees will also have the opportunity to receive
    information from other transportation agencies, including MARTA (rail and bus transit), GRTA (Xpress bus
    service) and the Clean Air Campaign (Georgia Commute Options program).

    The total cost for the GA 400 Demolition project is $4.5 million, of which $3.5 million covers construction
    associated with the demolition. Southeastern Site Development, Inc., of Newnan, has been contracted for the
    construction component of the project and will be managed through the Georgia Department of Transportation.

    Early removal and modifications of redundant signage will begin in October.  No heavy demolition work is
    expected to take place during the winter holidays after tolls end. Toll booth demolition is scheduled to be
    completed by spring 2014.
