COBB COUNTY, Ga. – Drivers may have a little sticker shock during their evening commute.

The I-85 hot lanes reached a record of more than $15 for the second day in a row Tuesday morning.

New dynamic pricing went into effect last Monday. The Tollway Authority says the new system gives more flexibility to lower and raise the per-mile charge based on traffic conditions and congestion.

Channel 2’s Steve Gehlbach tested out the express lanes, which did appear to be going faster than the free lanes.
