    That’s why we built 285, y’ all, it’s the bypass. This morning, Atlanta’s MARTA transit system increased rail services to accommodate the expected increase in travelers. By mid-day MARTA CEO Keith Parker was reporting a 25 percent surge in ridership. With highway capacity already at a premium, the I-85 closure comes at a time of peak demand. This weekend, spring break gets underway for many area school students. And Friday evening, the Atlanta Braves will inaugurate their new stadium with a preseason game. During construction of the new stadium, critics questioned the impact the facility would have on traffic at its location near the junction of I-285 and I-75 in suburban Cobb County. Now that I-75 is the only northbound interstate out of downtown Atlanta, traffic plans will be put to the test. Despite the inconvenience, some residents and officials are putting Thursday’s disaster in perspective.
