If they were so concerned with too many exits per mile, one might ask why an exit at 17th street was created. Closing exits downtown brought to you by the same engineers whose modeling said one exit on I85N to GA400 showed it would work. Note that Los Angeles has just sychronized every single light in its jurisdiction. If we improve surface streets and light timing and coordinate this with connector ramps, this could help. A Peachtree Street streetcar would be a disaster and interfere with what is actually a very effective artery. A subway would be better and faster and if Atlanta does anything expensive, it should be to expand Marta underground every which way it can. Expensive, but fast and effective transportation proven in every other major metro in the world.
