Atlanta Rush "Hour"
An FYI for those visiting Atlanta. Rush hour lasts from about 7-10am and from 4-7pm. Beware of the downtown connector, spaghetti junction, jimmy carter blvd, 10th st, 14th st, and peachtree industrial blvd to name a few.

Don't forget 75 north into Marietta. It's always slow through there.

I used to live in Canton and work in Alpharetta off of Old Milton. That drive really sucked, but I know other areas around Atlanta were much worse. It took 45-60 minutes to go 17 miles.

I drive an eighteen wheeler through atlanta four or five days a week. Rush hour last pretty much all day it is just worse at times (friday all afternoon esp.).

That's the downtown connector, it runs through midtown and downtown, and is a parking lot during rush hour.

it should be non rush hour, and rush hours

It also depends on direction. Since everyone lives outside of the city the morning commute is terrible in bound and evening is bad outbound. Additionally because of the Grady curve and 20 inbound in the afternoon gets bad just south of the 17th st exit on 75 and Peachtree on 85

y'all should know about Nascar285 i mean I285 atlanta by pass, 62 miles of speed demons at all time of the day and night, ive seen groups of 25 or more crotch rockets blocking the whole road at 15-20 miles an hour then punching it to race to I dont know where.

180 club
That is know as the 180 club. In order to join you have to run 180 MPH for atleast 10 minutes on 285. No worries though the GSP will either catch them or scoop them up in a body bag.:2c:

400N @ 285E, not good!

I hate atlanta, rush hour traffic. That is why I also have a place at the lake for all my toys.

Chiles 01-23-2011 10:34 AM

Rush hour will easily make a 30 minute trip into 2 hours.

frenchlayer 01-24-2011 04:18 PM

yes, atl traffic sux. Good thing all the bridge jumpers stopped, like we had a few years ago. Would really screw up the traffic

brian2sos 02-17-2011 07:33 PM

I hate the traffic. Just a few more months before I move to suwanee and I can't wait

nnatic 02-21-2011 12:56 PM
