Anyone know what happened to this project? GDOT was going to widen 85 in Gwinnett to Braselton Highway in Barrow County (with HOV lanes from Old Peachtree Rd to Hamilton Mill)... construction should have been completed by now and was funded through Gov Perdue's "Fast Forward" program...


Why wasn't it built?? Seemed like everything was ready to go... Perdue really was such a joke.

Last thing I heard about it was several months back when it WAS going to be included in the TSPLOST proposal. The project got thrown off as soon as local governments figured out they wouldn't get federal funding for 85, but instead for 316 overpasses. Something along those lines.

Correct me if someone has more updated information. I have been continuously saying 85 NEEDS to be widened all the way to South Carolina.
