ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, September 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Metro Atlanta's long-awaited Northwest Corridor reversible Express Toll Lanes just opened. In a few short weeks, MARTA will announce how it plans to spend an estimated $2.5 billion in sales tax funds over the next 40 years. Gwinnett County just scheduled its voter referendum on a transit tax; more announcements are expected to follow in metro Atlanta.
