The Georgia 400 toll ended Friday after two decades in operation. The last toll was collected at 11:30 a.m., according to our affiliate CBS Atlanta. Tolls weren’t expected to end until after this evening’s rush hour, but toll booth workers were waving drivers through the plaza.

The former Peach Pass lanes will become the throughway for drivers as demolition is set to begin on the toll plaza early next year.

The rain of quarters, dimes and nickels has yielded $300 million in revenue and $11 million in fines since the toll plaza opened 20 years ago.
