As you know by now, Fulton County has been declared a "State of Emergency" by Georgia Governor Nathan Deal due to the I-85 bridge collapse from fire Thursday evening. Thankfully, there were no injuries from this tragic event. While this bridge is a small portion of interstate, its effects will be felt throughout Atlanta.
