    ATLANTA - Drivers in north Fulton County who use Georgia Route 400 will no longer have to pay a toll starting in November.

    The Georgia State Road and Tollway Authority announced Thursday that the toll will stop being collected along the expressway beginning the week before Thanksgiving.

    The state said they collect about $20 million from more than 119,000 weekday users annually.

    That number of commuters is expected to go up too.

    "We anticipate an 18 percent increase in volume once the tolls are removed," Malika Wilson of the Tollway Authority said.

    Wilkins said it should take crews about six months to remove the toll booths.
