Photo detail

In this July 9, 2012, photograph made using a long exposure, traffic moves along Interstate 75 against the downtown skyline in Atlanta. When Georgia voters head to the polls on July 31, some of the state's political and business leaders claim they will be deciding no less than the future of the region for decades to come. Among the most contested races on the primary ballot is a transportation infrastructure referendum that would create a penny sales tax in 12 districts across the state, potentially raising billions of dollars to fund hundreds of projects over the next 10 years. But transportation has proven a controversial candidate, and the issue could be a hard sell in the weeks leading up to the election. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
