The mystery of the vanishing gate

This is in Atlanta airport. Note the board that shows the area for Gate 52/57. Behind the board, you can see the gate clearly marked Gate 52. If you notice carefully, on the left you can see Gate 50 and on the right you can see Gate 55. So, where is Gate 57?

As you can see, the gates were crowded – else, I was going to walk up to the gate agent and ask what the deal was all about.

I even wondered if the same gate carries two numbers. But why would anybody want to do that???

    I could be wrong, but I think I have an answer. I have seen gates with two different numbers in Bangalore International Apt as well . This was what I noticed.. The gate was no 27 for Thai Airways departure @ 0030 rs and then 33 for Lufthansa departure @0230 hrs.
