Depending where you are on Hwy 5-maybe you could go Hwy166 and bypass I-20. I live right off Hwy 166 and go Cascade Palmetto Hwy to Cascade and then get on 285 from there-you will miss ALL those huge trucks that get on from I-20. It may be more miles but less time for sure.

I would love to know that way. That 20 and 285 combo is a nightmare morning and evening.

Default Atlanta’s Real Estate Ring of Death

Quote:
Steve Palm of Smart Numbers, one of Atlanta’s premier real estate data
analysts, was on the tube last night telling the public what real estate
insiders have known for quite some time: Atlanta’s core* is surrounded by a ring of counties that might never see significant real estate development in our lifetime.


Dubbed by Palm as the “Ring of Death”, the area is comprised of Paulding,
Carroll, Douglas, South Fulton, Clayton, Henry, Newton, Barrow, parts of far east Gwinnett, Hall and the northernmost parts of Cherokee counties.

These counties all share in the same general circumstances: previous
over-development, a glut of vacant lots and undesirable commutes to Atlanta. This isn’t to say that real estate isn’t selling in this area, just that new construction no longer makes financial sense.
So what do y'all think?
