Atlanta - I-85 Bridge FINISHED - Time-Lapse Video! Opens Mon. May 15th

Atlanta - I-85 Bridge FINISHED -
Time-Lapse Video! Opens Mon. May 15, 2017



Damage to Delight - amazingly ready to open again!


March 30th - the day the bridge collapsed -
Totally creating a traffic nightmare for Atlanta.



At a Press Conference on May 10, 2017, Georgia Department of Transportation Commissioner Russell McMurry stated that the Northbound lanes would probably open sometime Saturday and the Southbound lanes sometime on Sunday, May 14, 2017. Mother's Day!


MARTA - the Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit system - addressed the commute crisis for workers with the addition of extra services.

In order to help out with the transition, the Atlanta Jourrnal-Constitution published material to teach communters how to ride the rails!


If you were one of the communters facing a two-hour journey instead of the 30-minute commute you always faced to get into town to work, you will be one of the many very happy people now that the work finished so much sooner than expected.


Contractor work 24/7 resulted in the I-85 Bridge's re-opening about one month earlier than the June 15th date originally projected.

So fast it was truly amazing! AND -- I bet that the 3.1 million bonus for finishing before the end of May probably helped! 
All the best - Lynn
