* I went through Spaghetti Junction twice yesterday. On my way south,
the I85S-to-I285E exist lanes were backed up for at least 3/4 mile or more,
and there were flashing lights and HERO trucks on the flyover. This is day
*after* the events described in the news article from the AJC. Either
there was an additional accident in the same place a day later, or DeKalb
police decided to have a police presence on the flyover to slow things
On my way back north on I-85, two lanes were closed by Dekalb County police
because they were underwater. Apparently no drainage (or blocked drainage)
for I-85 N road surface on the lowest level (under Spaghettic Junction)
almost all the way to the Pleasantdale on-ramp.
For you non-Atlantans - roads are closed all over the area, including
interstates, because of flooding. See the Atlanta Journal Constitution for
a list. (www.ajc.com)
There was an accident late morning on Monday, a truck slammed the
guardrail (jersey barrier) on the ramp from I-85 south to I-285 east
and that ramp along with I-285 was closed for a while. I got on I-285
East/South from the Chamblee-Tucker exit, just below the accident and
it was odd being the only car on my side of the road for a bit. It's
been a mess here the last couple days.
