A word to the wise. Do not be thinking that you can try to just slip in on time Friday.
1. It is Friday
2. Braves also have a home game
3. It is a holiday weekend, getaway day.
4. It is rush hour.
5. It is Atlanta
You'd better get in by 3 or so or risk listening to the game on the radio somewhere on I-285.

6. Race Weekend
I'm cutting it very tight. Leaving Birmingham at 10 CT to my hotel which is 15 mins away from the Dome. I'm gonna be pissed if I have to sit in traffic.

I make that drive all the time. It sucks on a normal day. The road alternates between 2 and 3 lanes. Lots of traffic and road construction between Leeds and Pell City and again at Oxford/Anniston (stay left when the road splits). There will probably be a lot of cops out that day as well. You are going to be pissed.
It's also DragonCon! The weirdos will be out and about as well all weekend.
It's not great as RTTT points out but it is better than being on I 75
For those who are driving to the game, you can advance purchase a parking pass in the blue lot on Northside Drive if you go to the CFA Kickoff web site. It guarantees you a space.
True dat. If history holds it will be a parking lot by 1:00.
Went there this morning, and I think they're sold out. Was no parking available.
There will be a lot of Gypsy lot's, mostly across Northside Dr. from the Dome and I have never had any security problems there. The closer to the Dome the higher the price $15 to $25.There are also lot's on Marietta St North of Stats Sports Bar. Hotel parking, Ga. Aquarium...short walks to the Dome for all of them.
I think we're going to Marta it down, but this is great info for anyone looking to drive!
We won't be able to leave Knoxville until 14:00, any advice on alternate routes?
You might seriously considering jumping off 75/85 (we call it the Downtown Connector) at 285 and going west. Then take I-20 into the city. 20 always has less traffic and once you get to it, you should be going against the flow.
Several miles longer, but likely much quicker.
I'm leaving Jellico, TN (45 min north of Knoxville) at around 9 am Friday. I should be in good shape, right?
Unless you make alot of stops, you should hit Atlanta around 2:00 or so. I used to live in Caryville and could usually make it to Atlanta in about 4 hours. Safe travels and GO BIG ORANGE!
"Old School"! A strong defense wins championships!
7. Remnants of Hurricane Isaac?
Guys I wont be leaving chatt until 4:00 eastern. Which means if traffic is good I wont be there until 6ish. What do I do????
According to the ATL guys, your in bad shape
I plan on getting in atlanta around 1 and parking at a northern marta station. My friend is leaving knox around 1:30 and parking like i did and meeting me near dome, think we will be ok?
You'll be fine.
What about my friend?
Follow the same instructions that JellicoVol got and should should get there before game time.
Should be fine also.
