ATLANTA, Georgia (WTVD) — What a difference 20 days makes! Time-lapse video released by the Georgia Department of Transportation shows the rapid progress repairing Interstate 85.

An Atlanta overpass collapsed during rush hour earlier this month when a fire was started in plastic being stored under the bridge.

A portion of Interstate 85 in Atlanta, Georgia, collapsed Thursday after a fire, officials said.

A man now faces arson charges in that incident.

Interstate 85 is a major thruway in the Atlanta metropolitan area, carrying 400,000 cars a day, according to the Department of Transportation. The highway’s closure has caused major headaches in the heavily car-dependent city.
