I wanted to leave home (Knoxville Tn) on 24 November 2019 and head south for the winter. We are pulling a 40 ft fifth wheel and will be passing through Atlanta. I thought this was a good idea since the 24th is a Sunday and traffic would be light. However, my neighbor informed me that the Falcons have a home game that day and are playing Tampa. Now I'm thinking I should change my plans. I'm not a football person but guessing that I75 will be heavy with people going to the game.


Any additional thoughts on this?

We always take the bypass. There is no straight stretch of level road going thru Atlanta and there are many entrances and exits to be wary of.

I live here and always go straight thru. Find out when the game is and go thru during game time. They will all be at the stadium.

The bypass sucks. Semis can’t go straight thru anymore so once you’re past the bypass the traffic was easy esp with no semis.

Or very early, before 9AM

Even during the weekdays, straight thru before 6AM.

441 is the only way I will go any more. I will Never go through ATL again. You can pick up 129 into Macon and then get on 75 there. It's a much more pleasant drive.
