I dunno. It’s a crappp shoot. I’ve been thru five times in the last few years and going straight thru midday during the week was fine. 3-4 years ago south of where it usually clears out, a semi trailer caught fire and shut down 75 for 2-3 hours. We sat like picnickers.

This year headed north we got off 75 to go 85 to Gaffney and 85 was a disaster.

If you have traffic conditions on your GPS, I’ll go thru on 75 unless there is a wreck.

I always go straight through on 75, often using the HOV lane if traffic is heavy...mid day or after 7PM.


This post is my opinion (free advice). It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

Atlanta traffic is insane and getting worse every day. I have been thru twice recently on trips to NC. First trip I took 85 north to 285 around to 85 again. I went thru noonish on a Thursday. It was crazy. The return was on Monday. We left Mt Pisgah early so to beat the afternoon rush, again horrible.

Second trip I left on Wednesday morning, 85 right thru town. Just as bad or worse than 285, again mid morning, should have been after the rush hour. Lanes in downtown are narrow. Return on Friday, we left Cherokee fairly early and it was still a mess on 285.

Only time the Atlanta traffic is pleasant is in the middle of the night. Quite frankly I would plan my departure from Knoxville so I went thru about midnight or 1 am.

I live south of Atlanta off of I-85 and work at the airport. I get all over the south side and enough elsewhere to know I don't like it.

Be sure and check the TDOT web site for closures, there may be some nighttime ones on I-75

The bypasses suck. Stay on 75 thru town or do 441.

Newsflash:
Traffic EVERYWHERE is pretty insane and getting worse every day.

We need some politicians who will look to the FUTURE instead of dwelling on the past.

Go right thru Atlanta at 10am or 2pm and you will be fine. Don't let the negative folks spoil your trip.
