Just in case you were planning on being on the interstate around lunch time on Tuesday...DON'T. Last time The President made his way through midtown on 75, traffic was terrible, even hours after. GA Tech prepares at 10:30, but supposedly Air Force One doesn't hit Hartsfield till noon.

They completely shut the freeways down nearby. It was a disaster. Fortunately it shouldn't affect me.

Security on this matter has gone bat**** crazy at times. I used to live in Cincinnati and Clinton and Bush both loved to come to town for $$$'s, they would shut 75 down 10 to 15 times a year all day, it was stupid as it ruined everybody's day.

Rail service is suspended over the freeways, including civic center station as the motorcade passes.

No. Too many people with surface to air missiles these days.

Yep. Hartsfield. Airspace restrictions start at 11:45 and last until 6:30 PM.

Yay for shutting down the busiest airport in the world when there's a perfectly usable military field 20 miles away.
