ATLANTA, GA–The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has announced plans to construct a new GA 400 toll plaza in order to pay for the demolition of the existing toll plaza. Demolition costs have been estimated at $3.5 million. GDOT officials are excited about the project.

“It’s going to be great,” said Frank Sampson, GDOT design engineer. “My dad worked on the first toll plaza, so I’m proud to be involved with the new one. Maybe some day my son will construct a toll plaza that pays for the demo of the one that I’m building today.”

Each toll booth will be equipped with cameras that will allow drivers to automatically upload pictures of themselves in their cars to Facebook and Twitter. Current Ga. 400 commuters say they are looking forward to the changes.

“I like the idea that I will be able to post pictures of myself automatically,” said Edward Harley, an investment banker in Buckhead. “You never know when a photo will be Facebook Profile worthy.”
