ATLANTA (AP) - Federal transportation authorities have designated interstates 75 and 85 in Georgia as part of a national network of alternative fueling and electric vehicle charging corridors.
The Georgia Department of Transportation says alternative fuel corridor designation has two categories: Signage-ready corridors already have enough alternative fuel facilities to merit signage, while signage-pending corridors need additional electric vehicle charging infrastructure to qualify for signage.
The agency says interstates 75 and 85 both have segments that fall into each category as they run through Georgia.
The national network of alternative fueling and electric vehicle charging corridors includes 48 interstate highways covering almost 25,000 miles in 35 states.
GDOT says the corridors help improve public access to alternative fuels and will serve as a foundation for a national network of electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
