Because Everyone Loves Traffic!!

Aaahhh…the not-so-open roads of ATL – isn’t that one of the main reasons we’re here? And just to make sure we get our much-needed, healthy dose of high-volume traffic, the DOT is planning one helluva happ’nin’ weekend for us.

That’s right! You too can get your fresh serving of fresh bumper-to-bumper jams, even if you live way outside the perimeter! Check it:
S.R. 400 will be undergoing resurfacing from S.R. 306 in Forsyth County to S.R. 53 in Dawson County: Nightly from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. weekdays, and 9 p.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday and Sunday mornings – one lane closed. And State Route 400 will have three lanes closed at the Holcomb Bridge Road Bridge.

Word is that work is also planned to occur on I-20, I-85, and I-285 in the Metro Atlanta area. YAY!!

    Ugh… so much traffic. Is there no end in sight? I hope we don’t get rain and construction at the same time…. One would think that they would cancel the construction with the upcoming rain. But nothing yet posted on the GA DOT site.

    So you’d rather they do the construction during the week? Or would you rather they not do it at all?

    Obviously you have a car or you wouldn’t be concerned about road work, so you no doubt understand that roads have to be maintained, right?

    I understand the need to maintain the roads.. but even so, it is human nature to complain/vent. Also, lately they have been doing construction during the week as well. Maybe they are falling behind on their projects.

    Thanks Briam!

    Ken: Yes, I own a car. Yes, I understand that roads have to be maintained. Honestly, I think it’s unnecessary to insult my intelligence by even asking the question. Anyway, they’re doing it all at once, which absolutely maximizes traffic, stress, and the potential for accidents. I think that’s worth complaining about for two paragraphs.
