BRAVES TRAFFIC 001.JPG (copy)

Baseball fans come across the under-construction pedestrian walkway on Windy Ridge Parkway over Interstate 75 about 45 minutes before the Atlanta Braves' inaugural game at SunTrust Park on March 31, 2017. Though the walkway was completed last year in the middle of the Braves' first season in Cumberland, Cobb County officials are looking to construct modifications on it to improve pedestrian safety.

I am not pleased with the cost (not figured into the original plan) but honestly, that is ALL I could think about on my way over that bridge to the Mets game, as I watched parents with their small children walking in large crowds just steps away from moving thru traffic. People are oblivious, despite the terror threat and the loss of life with just one wayward vehicle, planned or accident, would be horrific. I'm FOR this plan....but think Brassfield and Gorrie ought to do better on the price, especially because...shouldn't protective barriers have been thought of originally?
