Insanity on the Asphalt: Spaghetti Junction
I was in Atlanta, Georgia for some depositions this afternoon. They wrapped up right as rush hour traffic was taking hold on the highways in and around the city. I got lost on my way toward I-285 but eventually found the on ramp. Instead of being able to drive right into the grid lock a set of lights at the end allowed one car at a time to merge. Interesting.
Once on the road I drove a few miles before hitting the brick wall known as Spaghetti Junction. I-285 merges with I-85 and the result is a delight mess of traffic. I came to a complete stop and used the time to tweet, text and post some updates to Facebook. I did not mind the delay as we eventually started moving. After another bottleneck on I-75 South (where I snapped the pic of the happy dog) it was clear sailing for the rest of the ride back to Monticello.
