My sympathies if your commute takes you on I-85 in ATL

I'm glad I'm not working up there this weekend.



For those who had not heard, a fire under part of I-85 near Piedmont Rd caused a section of the elevated interstate to collapse. This may take 6months or longer to repair.

1. Right, since more of the overpass and on both sides of the highway

might have been rendered unsafe because of the high heat.

They can't even get engineers under there to check since that fire is still burning under the pancaked deck.

2. The back roads are going to suck big time for awhile.

3. They already do. The "alternative routes" are always clogged

I'm so glad I'm not up there right now
