"On Second Thought" For Monday, March 11, 2019

Eighteen miles of I-85 could be an on-ramp to the future. The Ray C. Anderson Memorial Highway, or The Ray, stretches from West Point to LaGrange. Named for a carpet manufacturer once called the "greenest CEO," The Ray is now a proving ground for technologies that could make infrastructure safer and more ecologically sustainable. So, how would it work? We asked Allie Kelly, executive director of The Ray.

We also spoke with Thomas Wheatley about why collisions involving pedestrians and cyclists are on the rise in metro Atlanta. Wheatley, who is articles editor at Atlanta Magazine, told us infrastructure and growth are two factors. 

The transmission of HIV is also on the rise in Georgia. Dr. Carlos Del Rio of Emory University explained why — and what it would take to stop transmission altogether.
