Major highways around the Atlanta region
Six interstate highways—I-20, I-75, I-85, I-285, I-575, and I-675—help metropolitan Atlanta residents and visitors get where they need to go.
Since their construction in the 1960s and 1970s, Atlanta's interstate highways have helped fuel urban sprawl, first around the northern I-285 perimeter and Interstates 75 and 85 north of the city. In the 1980s and 1990s, growth moved toward the southern part of the perimeter, following I-20 both east and west, as well as I-75 and I-85 south. This sprawl in turn fueled growth in traffic volume that prompted the interstate highway expansion and rebuilding projects that continue to this day.
