The Atlanta Police Department is pleased to announce, that with the hard work of city personnel and local contractors, the majority of streets in the downtown core will be re-opened to traffic in time for the afternoon rush hour. However, some streets in the areas of Cabbage Town and Vine City will remain closed.Many traffic lights are still non-functional. Atlanta Police officers will be staffing many of the busier intersections during rush-hour this afternoon and again tomorrow morning. Motorists are asked to pay careful attention to the direction of the officers. Where there is no officer, and lights are not functioning, motorists are to treat the intersection as a four-way stop, giving right-of-way to the right.

TRAFFIC UPDATE #2 - Alternate Routes Suggested
Atlanta Police advise that number one problem spot during inbound traffic this morning was on Courtland Street, as commuters opted for this exit rather than Williams or Martin Luther King Blvd. Tomorrow, motorists may want to try one of these alternate exits.
