Where are Decatur’s Worst Bottlenecks?Decatur Metro | April 19, 2010 | 10:49 am
The AJC blows our collective, commuting minds this morning with the list of the 10 worst traffic “bottlenecks” in Georgia from T.R.I.P., the The Road Information Program. You can read T.R.I.P.’s full release HERE.
Eight of the top ten worst traffic travesties are highways, starting with the I-75/I-85 connector down to I-285’s intersections of I-20 and U.S.78.
Also included on the list at #7 is Atlanta’s Amtrak station, which is “outdated” and “no longer meets Americans with Disabilities Act requirements and causes delays on the entire Norfolk Southern mainline when a train loads and unloads passengers”, and MARTA’s Bankhead/Candler Park 2-car train.
And though the Decatur metro area has nothing on TRIP’s Top 50 worst bottlenecks in Georgia list (PDF), I’m sure every car commuter in the area has got a an intersection or strip of roadway that they personally despise.
Where do you do your best cursing? South Candler at College? North Decatur at Clairmont?
