Plans later to extend it as a toll road to Interstate 85 were abandoned after public out-cry over tolls, potential traffic and the road path- only to be later resumed in 2009.
Plans have rehashed to extend RRP to directly connect with Interstate-85. On June 23, 2009, Gwinnett County voted to approve a partnership with a private firm to study extending the Ronald Reagan Parkway to I-85. The study will cost taxpayers $1.4 million.
The parkway begins at the intersection of Scenic Highway (S.R. 124) and Pinehurst Road in Snellville. It ends at the transition ramp to Pleasant Hill Road in Lilburn.
