Of course that's rare depends on weather, no wrecks, log trucks, school busses or huge backups on I-75 around Marietta. Under 4 hours though is normal.
The best route really depends on where you're leaving from and where you're going. If you're leaving from south Huntsville and want to go to Hartsfield, it might be better to go through G'ville, Gadsden, and take 20 over from Oxford. We used to go that way to Braves games when we lived in south Huntsville.

If some miracle happend, and an interstate highway or even a standard freeway suddenly appeared between Huntsville and Atlanta, it would cut close to an hour off the trip.

A new segment from Hwy 72 at Scottsboro to I-75 on the north side of the Atlanta metro, even going through Rome if necessary, isn't all that long ... just a bear to build. But highways have been built through higher mountains.

Who came up with an answer to a question that nobody asked?

Did the PR firm do it on their own dime to get publicity?

Also, if this happens, Huntsville will finally get a interstate through it. Although it's Huntsville, TX.

I know this was tongue-in-cheek, but Huntsville, TX already has I-45.

Yeah, but what about Huntsville, AR?
