the most amazing site my eyes have beheld in a long time….


that, my friends is an (albeit) murky view of georgia 400 at 8:45 this morning, somewhere between exits 8-9. no, your eyes do not deceive you. there is NO construction and count them, one, two, three, FOUR travel lanes.

notice that there is no backup, on a stretch of road i had nicknamed hamburger hill, even amidst the pouring rain.

just got back into town today and don’t think i have been this excited about something since santa claus delivered the gi joe armored personnel carrier to my house.

yah, yah, i know there is a social-responsibility, oh-great, now-more-people-will-drive downside to all of this, but for one day just let me revel in the sheer beauty of it.

now if only we can get the southbound done….

    I think that the only thing cooler would be if this picture showed a MARTA train line going up the middle of 400.

    James, I totally appreciate this, as I used to do the reverse commute myself. However, maybe you should be concentrating on the roads, rather than the photography? Just a thought. If I was driving on 400 and saw you doing this, I would be cussing you out for not paying attention. Although it would not piss me off as much as the jerks who read the newspaper in traffic. That really gets me.

    Congrats on a nice commute, though.

    Indeed, a beautiful sight, an ‘early christmas present’, as it were.

    Sorry dude, a MARTA train line up 400 would be the world’s biggest waste of taxpayer dollars. No one would ride it because the demographics aren’t there. Everyone in the 400 corridor is high income and lives in a single family home, which means they don’t ride transit.

    maybe, smoove, but it sure would be nice for those of us that live itp and work up there
