Mile marker 71 passes through Senoia, Georgia. This may seem like an innocuous detail, but this stretch of road has become quite well known to fans of the AMC survival horror series The Walking Dead. During the outbreak of a viral agent that brought the dead back to life as flesh-eating walkers, many civilians attempted to evacuate the various towns and suburbs. Ultimately, they found themselves bottle-necked on SR 85. This was where Lori Grimes, Carl Grimes and Shane Walsh first met Ed Peletier, his wife Carol Peletier and their daughter Sophia. Carol offered Lori and Carl some rations, which earned her no small degree of anger from her husband. 
As this group of survivors grew in number, they found themselves back on this highway. It was at this time that Sophia got separated from the group and went missing. Her mother stayed along the highway, leaving messages on cars alerting her to take shelter and that they would return every day to check for her.
