that I-85 southbound traffic at the 385/Woodruff exit is maddening. i have no idea why but, people feel the need to slow down to about 45 mph for that exit about two miles out. that exit, imo, is perfectly capable of taking at normal traffic speeds till you really start getting into the heart of it. it really does back stuff up.
i can only imagine how much worse that Pelham exit is going to be once the walley world (wal-mart) opens. ugh! dont get me wrong, im not a wally world basher, just seems like a horrible location for it. the other side of the highway would probably have been a better fit.
we live just a few miles from the I-85/Pelham area. if putting the walley world there is what it took to get the 5 Guys burger joint a five minute drive from my house, thats a price im willing to pay! oh, the ooey gooey greasy goodness that burger is.
btw, we need more "smilies" here!
