    I saw lots of news reports on this i-85 bridge fire,However shifting through the many reports.
    I found a you tube from what I think could be an Atlanta area blogger.
    He has an interesting spin on this news event.

    Atlanta is one of the worst cities ever to drive in. I don't know how freight can be delivered now.

    I'll bet that the Seabees could have something up and running in about two days.

    It will take longer to get through regulations & environment impact studies than the actual construction. A look back in history on Eisenhower's interstate highway construction shows what can actually be done in a reasonable time if government doesn't interfere.

    Three interstate highways in New Mexico. Two of them meet in Albuquerque. The Big I.

    So has there ever been a determination of what the "construction materials" that burned,were? By the looks of the smoke and flames,it looked like tires and railroad ties, but don't know for sure...
