One of the best exposures of the Brevard fault zone is located along I-285 approximately 12 mi (19 km) west of the center of Altanta, Georgia. This exposure is present just south of the Chattahoochee River (Fig. 1) on both sides of the Interstate. The outcrop on the east side of the Interstate is better for examining the textures and structures of the Brevard zone. Traffic along this section of Atlanta's Interstate system is very heavy, and extreme caution should be used in viewing this outcrop.
