I think more people from Gwinnett County go to the games than people in Cobb because 85S is more backed up than75S going into downtown on game day. Now all those people are going to have to take 285w from Gwinnett to get to Cobb. With no real transit in that area smh.

I can't wait to see what Cobb taxpayers have to say about this!

This might be the dumbest idea that I have ever heard of logistics wise.

I've always been against a MARTA connection to Turner Field. Ironically, now I'll actually be in favor of it!

Anyways, wow, two major stadium projects going on simultaneously. Kinda funny how the Braves have been talking so much about new transportation options, redevelopment options for their parking lots, their commitment to Turner Field, and so forth, and it has all apparently been garbage. It seems like a lot of time and effort has been wasted, and they weren't really acting in good faith.

So are they talking about here - http://goo.gl/maps/O9MPD

Or here - http://goo.gl/maps/J3R34


Option 1 has great HOV access but seems like a really small space
Option 2 will be raping a very beautiful nature preserve

Having a hard time imaging where this fits up there.

Home of the Braves
The website says NORTHWEST intersection of 285/75. The river is SOUTHEAST of the intersection, so I'm confused.

Neither. This is directly from their new site homeofthebraves.com. It is between Windy Ridge Parkway and Circle 75 west of I-75 near the Boy Scouts headquarters.
