ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia's transportation department is seeking bids on a massive project to add toll lanes to two busy interstates northwest of Atlanta.

The project will add the optional toll lanes to interstates 75 and 575, which would open in March 2018 if all goes according to plan.

Darryl VanMeter of the Department of Transportation tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the state is seeking innovative and an efficient design for the project.

Metro Atlanta already has toll lanes on Interstate 85 northeast of the city. The I-85 toll lanes span about 16 miles from near Chamblee Tucker Road, just south of I-285, to Old Peachtree Road in Gwinnett and DeKalb counties.
