ROSWELL, Ga. -- An experiment in metro Atlanta traffic began Monday morning.

Drivers were allowed to drive on the shoulder of GA 400 southbound from Holcomb Bridge Road to the North Springs MARTA Station exit.

It's an effort to ease congestion on the busy tollroad.

The shoulder will only be open weekday mornings from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m.

The Georgia Department of Transportation expects it to take a while for drivers to get used to the new traffic pattern. GDOT plans to see how things go with until next fall.
