Memorial Day traffic: Heading to your weekend event? Prepare for delays

The roads around metro Atlanta are more congested than usual with the convergen514congestionce of events this holiday weekend.

Red lines on the metro Atlanta traffic map around 5 p.m. show the areas where drivers are mostly sitting rather than rolling along in their cars.

According to @ajcwsbtraffic, delays continued late Friday afternoon on 75/85 north and southbound in the city as fans head to Hawks and Braves games tonight. The congestion is expected to continue through the evening and the weekend as holiday events continue.

If you are planning to attend an event in the city this weekend, consider MARTA and if driving, build in extra time (and patience) to slog through traffic.
