A new Reason Foundation report by Robert Poole calls for a major "rethinking" of Atlanta's long-range transportation plan and proposes four major toll road and tunnel projects to significantly reduce the region's current and projected traffic congestion. A recent Reason study found that if Atlanta does not add significant new freeway capacity the region will soon be stuck with gridlock worse than today's Los Angeles.
