I haven't been over on the east recently to see what it is like near Gunn Rd but last time I was it was just scary.

Pretty much the Perimeter as a whole is nearing a point where something needs to be done and not just on the south from Kennaston to Lag.
No shocker there. It's a 1966 road operating in a 2018 world. Nothing has changed with the Perimeter in the last 50+ years except for completing the NE segment and building 5 interchanges. Meanwhile population and traffic counts have soared. It would be interesting to get a traffic engineer's perspective on the deficiencies with the Perimeter relative to current standards. I bet there would be many.
