up to EIGHT LANES are going to be closed on the connector this weekend according to this press release from the dot.

i inadvertently got caught in this when only three lanes were closed and it was an abject nightmare.

piedmont is probably your best bet on the east side of town and on the west side northside has been pretty much clear throughout this paving mess. if you are traveling from points outside atlanta to points beyond atlanta, take i-285.

of course, transit is always an option, especially with $4.00 gas.

    Hey, I just wanted to post this somewhere fellow Atlantans might find it… I just realized that Google has added "public transit" to their directions searches, and Marta is one of the systems supported. Complete with times and everything! The Marta site is so putrid, maybe this will help increase ridership, by making it easier to find a way to get where you want to go.

    Here is an example:

    Ok, one last try

    Piedmont Park to Turner Field via Marta

    (delete my donkey attempts above… and maybe add preview functionality. haha. )
