Interstates and Highways in Atlanta
- Atlanta is served by three interstate highways.
- Interstate 85 N.(the Northeast Expressway) connects Atlanta with Greenville, South Carolina, and Charlotte, North Carolina, before merging with I-95 near Richmond, Virginia.
- Interstate 75 N. (the Northwest Expressway) extends from Atlanta to Chattanooga and Knoxville in Tennessee; Cincinnati, Ohio; Detroit, Michigan; and the Canadian border. Below Atlanta, I-75 S. (the Southeast Expressway) is the route to Florida via the Georgia cities of Macon and Valdosta.
- Interstate 20 W. (the West Expressway)goes from Atlanta to Birmingham, Alabama; Jackson, Mississippi; Dallas, Texas; and beyond. I-20 E. (the East Expressway) continues to Augusta, Georgia; and Columbia, South Carolina; connecting with I-95 in Florence, South Carolina.
- Interstate Tips for traffic management
- Driving north on the Downtown Connector, I-75 and I-85 split just after you pass downtown: You must take one or the other.
- The division comes up only 1.25 miles after the first sign announcing it, so you have to be prepared to act fast.
- This straightforward stretch of interstate has confused many a driver, and it's easy to see why.
- The three lanes for I-85 (the Northeast Expressway) are on the left.
- The three lanes for I-75 (the Northwest Expressway) are on the right -- exactly backwards from what you'd instinctively expect.
- Begin to move into the appropriate lanes as soon as you safely can after seeing the first signs for the upcoming split, or you may get caught on the wrong side.
- Even if you've paid attention and found your lane early, be alert for other drivers frantically switching sides at the last minute.
- As you approach Atlanta by interstate, be particularly cautious around I-285, as its interchanges with the expressways are frequently the sites of accidents.
- All 18-wheel vehicles traveling the interstates are required by law to take the Perimeter, unless their destination is inside Atlanta.
- Many a trucker has jackknifed on I-285's ramps after failing to slow down.
- Even seasoned Atlanta drivers find themselves braking or changing lanes at the last minute because they're baffled by the signage, which is particularly confusing on the west side of town.
- There, as they try to enter I-285 from I-75, the left lanes head east; the right lanes head west.
- Why add express lanes?
- The DOT estimated that freeway traffic increased 20 to 40 percent in Atlanta from 1994 to 1995.
- The Environmental Protection Agency rates Atlanta as a "serious" nonattainment area for ozone smog pollution and during rush hour, they're less congested and move more smoothly than other bumper-to-bumper lanes.
- Express lanes were added to I-75, I-85, the Downtown Connector (75/85), and I-20 east of the city.
- An express lane will not be added to the less congested stretch of I-20 west of the city.
- Express lanes are marked with a diamond symbol and a sign reading "Left Lane -- Buses and car pools only."
- Only buses and vehicles with two or more persons can use the express lanes during their hours of operation.
- The express lanes on I-75, I-85 and the Downtown Connector operate at all times, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
- On I-20 east of the city, the inbound express lane operates during morning rush hour, from 6:30 to 9:30 AM; the outbound express lane operates from 4 to 7 PM.
- For information on the latest lane and ramp openings and closings, the locations of construction crews each day, and road conditions, call the DOT at (404) 656-5267.
