I-85 bridge collapse In atlanta
I drove this section of the I-85 expressway to and from work every weekday when I lived in Atlanta. I was one of the 200,000 commuters (plus another 50,000 intrastate and interstate drivers) who use it pretty much daily. It's mind-boggling to think one of the busiest stretches of interstate highway in the U.S. (in the heart of one of its largest, most-vibrant cities) will be closed for MONTHS while it is repaired. I feel the pain of the residents of my former home city who will have to deal with a horrid traffic nightmare this spring and (maybe) summer. Oy vey!
