Even with I-85 widened to four lanes to the south/west, there are still over 30,000 vehicles merging into a one-lane ramp from I-485 to I-85 southbound on an average day. The congestion from the I-85 bottleneck doesn't help, but this problem won't go away until the ramps from I-485 are extended. What's needed are three lanes from I-485. Lane 7 ends at the Sam Wilson Rd overpass, lane 6 ends before the Moores Chapel Rd overpass, lane 5 exits at Exit 27, and then four lanes to US 321.

I would also vote for relocating the southbound weigh station as that is forcing all trucks into the right lane and interfering with the flow of things as they have to merge left twice in half a mile after leaving the station.
