Atlanta Transportation 1950-2000
The most interesting part of research I have found is the way freeways have allowed Atlanta to grow and attract more people. In 1952 the city added numerous freeways from federal funding to accommodate the rapidly increasing population. These freeways intersected with major interstate highways, connecting Atlanta with the southern region of the United States. The freeway system connected Atlanta with the rest of the nation and helped change the city from a small southern city to a major center of trade and growth in America.
