Back in April of this year, Three people have been charged in connection to a Thursday fire north of downtown Atlanta that resulted in the collapse of an elevated span of Interstate 85, a major city thoroughfare that connects five states.

There is some good news..

I-85 in Atlanta will reopen in time for Monday’s morning rush hour commute and probably sooner.

The northbound lanes probably will be open sometime Saturday and the southbound lanes sometime Sunday, Georgia Department of Transportation Commissioner Russell McMurry said at a press conference Wednesday.

That puts the bridge’s reopening at least a full month ahead of the original June 15 deadline.
