North-South, now East-West: Another Atlanta highway closes

I-20 buckles in Atlanta North-South, now East-West: Another Atlanta highway closes
Francis Olson | 19 April, 2017, 09:58

A section of Interstate 20 outside of Atlanta buckled Monday morning between the Flat Shoals Road exit and Gresham Road overpass, injuring a motorcyclist and leading officials to close all westbound lanes of I-20.

Atlantans, ever-reliant on their cars for even the shortest of errands, are now down to two undamaged interstates - and one major headache.

Atlanta Gas Light spokeswoman Melissa Clontz says its contractor was working in the area.

The roadway is shut down and resulted in a big traffic backup, CBS46 reported.

The buckling was caused by a utility crew using machinery to bore a new natural gas pipeline under the highway, authorities said.

The Georgia Department of Transportation says the buckled stretch of Interstate 20 should be fixed by midday on Tuesday.

Witnesses said the motorcycle fell into the cracked pavement and tossed the biker on to the pavement.

Witness Greg Phillips saw a motorcyclist, who he said was going about 55 miles per hour, crash when it happened. DeKalb County spokesman Andrew Cauthen said he was hospitalized with multiple fractures.

Just weeks after a major fire closed a section of Interstate 85 in Atlanta, another highway is closed - this time due to the highway buckling, causing a huge bump in the roadway.

Just a few weeks after a fire caused Interstate Highway 85 in Atlanta to collapse, another situation is forcing numerous city's motorists to suffer.
