does anyone know why piedmont road was closed at north avenue this morning. from 8 to 9. in the middle of rush hour??

i mean seriously. what in the world could convince someone that it would be a good idea to close down one of atlanta’s 3 main southbound surface arteries in the middle of the morning rush.

it was absolute chaos.

i spent 40 minutes getting from glen iris to the connector.

and in preparatory response to a certain commenter on this site, yes i know it would have been much better on a bike. i am not biking to alpharetta.

that’s it.

rant over.

    Only a guess, but a lot of construction is going down at the old Peter’s mansion by SCAD. It’s right at that intersection.

    you have probably by now heard of the nastly little gas line break in the area.

    Just for fun, plug your starting and ending addresses into the new transit trip planner and see what you get. I’m guessing 2 hours.

    Just wait till the 14th street bridge shuts down. I better learn how to hang glide so I can just fly to work from my loft rooftop.
