Here's a music video by Adron, a local musician, that was filmed partially on the Beltline, and includes the bridge we're talking about. Warning: song contains the f word.

I don't know whether this will have a negative effect on the Beltline or transit in Atlanta generally, but it's likely to be a big boost for our nearest rival.

I'm just thinking that given the rivalry between Charlotte and the ATL, I'd rather have someone other than the mayor of Charlotte in charge of the DOT.
