Gwinnett Daily Post (Lawrenceville) reports that Georgia Department of Transportation Commissioner Russell McMurry told a May 4 business gathering that he expects construction to begin on the I-85 high-occupancy toll lane extension project in August. According to the newspaper, McMurry said, "They are actually working through design now, getting the permits in place and ready to turn dirt in August. That’s about a $149-$150 million investment in mobility and trying to bring mobility up the northeast side of the county. . . ."
