We plan to go straight through on I-75 on Sunday mornings at about 10 am. Second choice is Sat mornings. Third choice is the remaining days same time. I've had more trouble on 285 than 75 but of course neither is a picnic.

We just went to Gatlinburg last weekend and there was construction on north side and construction on south side. Atlanta really sucks!! A no win situation there.

Just came home Monday on I-20 west to east. Wasn't too bad, hit right at 11am or so and went right through steady 55 to 60. Most everybody waved as they passed but what the heck, I don't live there! The North South route is probably worse but just time it like stated above, 10am to 2pm and it shouldn't be too bad unless there's an accident. Then all bets are off!

How about that smooth patch of road between Fulton Industrial BLVD and I 285 on the west side?
It'll shake your lug nuts off!

I live in Warner Robins, GA just 1.5 hours south of Hotlanta. I would use one of two scenarios, if I were you.

1. Drive north to High Falls Campground and spend Saturday night there. Leave at 0700 hours driving I-75 right through town.

2. Take Hwy 441 from Macon towards Athens, GA and connect via I-40. Scenic drive and the traffic is not too bad. Little white knuckled on I-40 at times, but doable.

I live in Florida and hate Atlanta traffic. I usually go the way that podschweit suggested when going to nashville or columbia tn. Its about 3.5 hours from jacksonville out I10.
I like to stop at the motocross museum in alabama and usually find the semi trucks are a lot less on I65 than I75. Its four lane interstate out of Dothan all the way up to Nashville.

Pack plenty of patience and stay alert for crazy mean drivers.
I second the suggestion of taking the west side of the loop, usually much lighter traffic.

I75 straight through from 10AM to 2 PM in the MH pulling a Toad. Faster then taking the I285 bypass that is full of trucks.

Run 60-62 MPH everyone is flying passing me(70-80 MPH) in the 55 MPH(Joke) speed limit.
But I have a clear road ahead.
That has worked for me the last 17 years 2 times a year.

I always stay in a Campground N & S of Atlanta that get me through at the above times when leaving around 7AM.

Second on the first suggestion. Been there done that, worked real well. High falls was a nice place to spend a night and stretch the legs walking around.

I have also tried to bypass atl using some back roads around the outskirts of town...........never again. Took me twice as long as it should and i swear the lights in all those little areas are timed to force you to come to a stop and maybe get so annoyed at the stop and go that you just give up and stick around a while and spend money in the little town.
