Mini Road Trip to/from Athens, Georgia
« on: November 16, 2014, 02:09:14 PM »

This weekend I went to the Athens, Georgia area to visit family. Here are some photos from the trips there and back:

Going TO Athens:

Construction on I-75 in Cobb County:



Electronic speed limit sign on I-285 in Dunwoody:



View of I-85 on the I-85/I-285 interchange in northeast Atlanta:



About to get on GA SR 316 from I-85 in Lawrenceville:



GA SR 316 at the newly completed SR 316/SR 20/124 interchange in Lawrenceville (2 photos):





Returning home FROM Athens:

GA SR 316 at the Sugarloaf Parkway interchange:



BGS at the newly completed interchange on GA SR 316 in Lawrenceville (mentioned earlier in the thread):



The new exit (still talking about the same one) from a Westbound view:



More construction on GA SR 316 just west of the new interchange:



Two very tall cell phone towers off of I-85 near Norcross:



View of the I-85/I-285 interchange in northeast Atlanta getting onto I-285:



Another electronic speed limit sign on I-285:



View of the construction on I-75 in Cobb County going Northbound:



I-75 Northbound in Marietta right before the I-575 interchange (also with suburban sprawl in the background):



Also, here are two videos I took on the trip (one on the way there and one on the way back; both are on GA SR 316):

Thank you.  I will looking to go on a similar ride out of Milledgeville as I get more comfortable in my new hometown.

Indeed, thanks! They've already made a decent amount of progress on the I-75 work.

Of all the weekends to go to Athens, you picked when the Georgia/Auburn game was in town.  How was traffic?

Yeah, unsurprisingly traffic was absolutely terrible on the way there (as you can see in my video of SR 316 Eastbound). But we purposefully went on that weekend because my parents wanted to go to the game with my aunt & uncle.
