Both myself and my wife work at ATL and I cannot tell you how many missed approaches and go-arounds I see on a daily basis. However, the best reason for ATL to get a 5th and maybe 6th runway is to get rid of Hapeville and Riverdale.......what dumps. Atlanta could also use about 6 more lanes on each side of 75, 85 and 285 to ease traffic which is getting worse by the day. 3 lanes just doesn't cut it for a city whose working populous lives on average, 20-40 miles away from downtown. Just a thought!
