    Default Atlanta's I-85 Closed "for the forseeable future"

    This is a breaking story and details are still a bit sketchy, but we'll stay abreast of it and keep you informed on what it means and how to avoid it.

    The exact location of the fire and bridge collapse is on I-85 just south of GA-400, north of Downtown Atlanta.

    If you're planning to drive through Atlanta on I-85, you'll need to take I-285 around the east and south side of the city (probably a good idea anyway). If you were planning to head into downtown from the North or East, I'd expect some major extra traffic on I-75 and I-20.

    I'm looking at video of the fire from before the bridge/elevated highway collapsed, and it was intense.

    They hope to have it rebuilt and reopened by June 15.

    I-85 is closed in both directions between GA-400 and I-75.
