Augusta to Atlanta

I will be driving from Augusta to Buford on a Thursday evening. Google Map show a route that takes me to Rt. 585 around Atlanta. I would probably be there about 7:00 p.m.

Will I still hit Atlanta rush hour?

I saw another route that would have me take Rt. 17, then around Athens and so on.

Having heard the horror stories about Atlanta rush hour I'm tempted to take the more rural route.

Take the second route on google maps, 20 w and GA. 15 through athens...there is no hwy. 17 or 585, it is 15 and 285.

OK, thanks, I guess I read or typed the route incorrectly.

So, I guess I'd be better off taking the Rt.17 around Athens.

Thanks for the suggestion.
