Nice pic of a horrible traffic mess! I'm glad I don't have to deal with that on a regular basis!

Dang.

I try to avoid Charlotte rush hours if I'm in that area.

That section around 485 where its two lanes now is a horrible mess. Once they get the additional lanes open maybe it will be a less congested commute in that area.

I take I-485 every day to and from work, but I take the new section that is mostly 3 lanes. It's getting heavier as each day passes. It's starting to be used as a bypass now for travelers coming through the area. Folks can go from I-77 to I-85. The newest section connecting it from I-85N to I-85S should be finished by summer I'm assuming and I can already guess that it will make for a major headache on I-485, for sure on the 2 lane part in south Charlotte. When the entire loop gets finished it will help ease things a bit, but until then I imagine traffic will just get gradually worse on 485 with travelers, commuters are a different story, LOL!
