Wed, 1/29 @ 1:49PM – US Hwy 31 mess. Quite the traffic scenario has emerged on Hwy 31 by the time we make it to the Vestavia Dr overlook. If you zoom in on the high resolution picture, you can see cars crashed into each other in the southbound lanes at the Little Shades Creek bridge in the upper right-hand corner. For this reason, the southbound traffic has crossed over and is using the lefthand travel lane on the northbound side to head south. You can see somebody on a bike taking a picture on the Medical Center Dr bridge in the middle of the picture. You can also see sledding tracks on the side of the embankment!
