Doug Turnbull and Mark McKay talk Metro Atlanta traffic issues with the rest of the members of WSB Triple Team Traffic, local transportation officials, and YOU the listener.
Smilin' and Doug convene again to share memories and the influences of Captain Herb Emory, who passed away nine years ago. They also talk about mid-week traffic patterns, the latest jams in the I-285/GA-400 interchange, and some bridge projects. Then Bobby Lee, spokesperson for intelligent transportation firm LYT, joins to talk about how AI can curb distracted driving.
Smilin' and Doug return to debrief an active January in Atlanta traffic, including PM drive tornadoes, AM drive heavy rain and winds, long term freeway closures, and the emergency plane landing on I-985. They also discuss the traffic patterns in the I-285/GA-400 interchange a few months after the lane reductions and they toast Scott Slade, whose 32-year tenure as "Atlanta's Morning News" host ends soon.
WSB Triple Team Traffic's Doug "Fireball" Turnbull and Smilin' Mark McKay take a half-hour with GDOT Commissioner Russell McMurry to lay out the I-285 bridge rebuilds in Dunwoody and Sandy Springs, the eight-month lane closures, the impacts to surrounding roads, and the delays of and the future of the whole project. Doug and Smilin' also dig deeper on how these closures fit into an increasingly more chaotic Atlanta traffic picture.
Meet your WSB Traffic Team! Doug Turnbull, David Hubbard, Mike Shields, Jackie Lee, Zach Grizzle, Alex Williams, Mike Boozer, Veronica Harrell, Ashley Frasca, Mark Arum, and Smilin’ Mark McKay.
