Our house is about two blocks from Interstate 64, although in STL it is called Hwy 44 (don't ask me why!). Several years ago they started the process of widening the interstate, and the plan was that they would just close it down and rebuild it. I can't imagine that working in Atlanta! They actually tore down a block of houses next to the interstate a few years ago in preparation. They closed the part that is closest to us in December, and anticipate it being finished by the end of the year. We take the dogs up there from time to time to check on the progress of things. Its very odd, seeing an interstate as a construction site. While I was in SC they tore down the bridge over the interstate near our house, and we now have lots more traffic on our road since we are a detour route. Here's the bridge a few weeks before it was demolished. And here is the pile of scrap metal it left behind!
