ATLANTA (WDEF) You’ve got to wonder just how safe the interstates are around Alanta these days.

First, there was the fire and collapse on I 285.

This morning, a chemical truck wreck brought hazmat and a major traffic jam to I 85.

Now we have a new mystery buckle in the highway.

Was it a ruptured gas line or water line?

One tweet claims it happened after a motorcycle hit it!

Whatever the cause, the pavement buckled on WB I-2 at the Gresham Road exit.

😨 I’ve never seen anything like this! This is on I-20 near Flat Shoals Rd. https://t.co/m4fNYNpqT0

#ATL is getting weird. This is on I-20 near Flat Shoals. Asphalt just burst up.

Earlier this morning, an accident forced a tanker truck to overturn.

And a toxic chemical spilled out onto the Downtown Connector.

It shut down the vital interstate for hours, and caused several school delays as a result.

But there appear to be no lasting affects.

Of course, crews are still working on the I 85 collapse.

The goal now is to repair the highway by Mid-May.

But you can’t blame Atlanta area motorists who may be thinking they are driving on cursed highways.

    What a poorly written article with lots of errors! (1) There was no “fire and collapse on I 285; it was on I 85. (2) There is no I-2 in Atlanta; it should say I 20. (3) It’s grammatically incorrect to start a sentence with “and” or “but.” Please, please have someone review your articles before posting them.
