"Welcome to Atlanta where the players play and the highways collapse like every day..."
There is no doubt it's been a rough few weeks for Atlanta highways. Between the I-85 collapse, a major HAZMAT spill that shut down the downtown connector Monday morning and I-20 westbound being closed Monday afternoon in DeKalb County after the road to buckled, it would appear that somewhere, someone has angered the Atlanta traffic gods.
But at least some of us are maintaining a sense of humor about all the misfortune. Check out some of our favorite reactions on social media to these highway debacles:
