I-75 Atlanta, GA

http://www.wsbtv.com/news/news/local...ng-i-75/nYjTm/

The first reversible toll lanes in the state of Georgia will commence construction later this year. It will be constructed in the median of I-75 southeast of Atlanta, through the McDonough & Stockbridge areas, ending just after the I-675 split. The new toll lanes are 12 miles long and free for buses and carpools. It's the first new capacity in greater Atlanta in quite some time. It will open to traffic in 2016.

Not quite. There's a major widening underway on I-20 east from I-285 to Panola Road. I had it in mind to check it out on my way back from Florida a few weeks ago, but they had the ramp from I-285 north to I-20 east closed, and traffic was really messed up, so I didn't.

Also, northbound traffic was so bad in the I-75 project corridor and south-- on a Saturday afternoon!-- that I've put it on my 'avoid if at all feasible' list. from what I've seen, the reversible roadway should be kept open northbound except during evening rush hours-- for whatever reason, southbound is OK (except for the I-675 merge) most of the time.

I just realized this was posted in the wrong thread. Anyway...

Henry County is a growing suburban county located in the U.S. state of Georgia. As of the 2000 census, the population was 119,341. As of the 2010 census, the county's population swelled to 203,922, up 70.9% from the previous census and becoming Georgia's 8th most populous county and the 10th fastest growing county in the nation.

Henry County is now the typical Atlanta suburban area with a mix of forest areas and small subdivisions. Its population density is quite low even though there are no large undeveloped areas anymore. If it was a Texas suburban area, it could have easily fitted over 800,000 inhabitants.

US 301 - Why Drive 95?

Whenever I need to go from where I live near Wilmington, DE to southern Virginia, (or vice versa) I will always try to use US 301 instead of I-95. The section from Annapolis south to the Potomac is a little busy with intersections, but the part from the Nice Bridge south to Richmond is a walk in the park. We came up from Richmond a few weeks ago in the RV after a three-day weekend trip, and hit the Bowling Green - Potomac River section in the late afternoon. The light was beautiful. I took a bunch of shots from the driver's seat of the RV, so the quality is not the best, and please disregard the bug guts here and there. Over the Bay Bridge at Annapolis and then up the Eastern Shore is also a pretty easy drive compared to I 95, but it was getting pretty dark by the time we got there, so no pics, unfortunately. Once you get past Queenstown on the east side of the bridge, there's virtually no stop lights all the way up to Middletown, DE - just watch the at-grade crossings!

(Sorry about the two shots of "interstate" highway, I just slid them in here for continuity.)

I like driving Route 301, but the low speed limit from US 50 to Delaware drives me insane.

Yeah, I can see that - but in the RV I usually keep it under 65 anyway. I have trouble squeezing 8 MPG out of it, so I don't do fast & furious...

8 miles per gallon? That is what a fully loaded 80,000 lbs semi truck gets in Europe.

Chevy P30 truck chassis, 454 cubic inch carbureted gas engine, 15,000 lbs, and a fairly uneconomical 3-speed automatic transmission. But every free night in a Walmart parking lot saves me $150 in hotel bills.

TX-121 DFW connector

The DFW Connector project in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area was declared completed. I'm not sure if it is actually completed, I haven't read about the managed lanes being in service yet.
