I haven't read all of the replies, but Roswell Rd near 285, oh and Howell Mill Rd near I-75. Both need more lanes or something, always packed.

It can get a little sluggish at times, especially during rush hour, but it's not nearly as bad as it was, or nearly as bad as many of the other major thoroughfares mentioned in this thread.

It seems like it went from back ups across the whole stretch to only at Killian Hill and 124.

They should extend the passing lanes on Killian Hill & 78 for .5-1 miles in either direction in hopes of tweaking the light timing.
