Yep people here are awful drivers on the interstates, they don't care where their car is as long as it doesn't make contact with anything else.

In my opinion, it is the worst city for a trucker. Granted, I have not done Manhattan in NYC, but nearly everywhere else, and I tell others that the ATL is the #1 on my Least Favorite list. Once more.....good-luck.gif

As a extra lil cherry on top, there was a chance there would be snow here. Atlanta, superbowl and snow? No thanks

Atlanta is FUN.. they said, lol. Ii don't mind it too much, but the best time is from say midnight to 3am in my opinion.. then I cruise right through.

Lol I forgot the superbowl was in town. Guess I need to come home more... They had been doing alot of construction on the west side at night and made a bigger mess of it. I live 2 hrs from ATL. I can do it, but I also avoid it whenever possible.

And the east, north, and south. It's a never-ending construction cycle. If they ever get finished, it will be tine to upgrade it. Reminds me of Milwaukee and Chicago construction.

When I was new to trucking our company would route us around every big city in the country (before we all started using gps) then one day I decided to drive right through St. Louis on s 70 and not take the bypass. Well that was the norm for me if there were no restrictions and it wasn't rush hour. Atlanta was no exception.

Chuck,

I do agree that there are some by-passes that are longer in miles and time than taking the interstate highway directly through the city. However, the example you give of following Interstate 70 through St Louis is one that I don't understand. It has always been quicker and less trouble for me to use the 270 bypass north of the city, rather than drive into the city on I-70. That is assuming I am remaining on I-70. If leaving I-70 for I-64 or another route then following I-70 into St Louis may be quicker than the 270 South bypass. Just my thoughts.
