Georgia DOT announces I-85 express lane construction information session

LAWRENCEVILLE, GA. – The Georgia Department of Transportation will hold a construction information session on the I-85 Express Lane Project on Sept. 1 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Gwinnett Civic Center. The project to convert 16 miles of HOV lanes to HOT lanes will offer more choices to all motorists, including single occupant vehicles and more reliable trip times in the corridor.

"This is the first project of its kind in Georgia," said DOT Commissioner Vance C. Smith, Jr. "With construction expected to begin in mid-September, it is extremely important that motorists understand how changes along the interstate will impact their commutes."

The Georgia Force Returns, Starting in 2011

DULUTH, GA - The Georgia Force is back among the living, and it's landing in Gwinnett County.

The Arena Football Team folded with the remainder of the indoor football league in 2008, after large debts forced the league to suspend operations. In late 2009, a replacement league formed from the ashes of the old league, and began playing football once again in 2010 - but the 15-team league began without the Force.

After the 2010 season, five more teams, including the Georgia Force, opted for joining the new AFL.

The new Force will play its games at the Arena at Gwinnett Center beginning in 2011. Season tickets are available at the Gwinnett Center box office with prices ranging from $59 to as much as $1,350. Single game tickets are available for as little as $10. For more information and to order tickets, call 770-609-1300.
