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.

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.

(AP Photo/Matt Dunham) A growing body of evidence suggests wearing face coverings brings some benefit in preventing the spread of the virus.
