Rain around Atlanta making it difficult for drivers out there

Things are slow around the metro.

ATLANTA — It's been raining all morning around Atlanta, soaking the roads and even causing flooding in some areas, which of course means one thing - traffic.

Accidents have been reported throughout the metro, and the 11Alive Thunder Truck found one at Peachtree Road and Piedmont Road in Buckhead.

Here's some of what's popping up this morning:

  • US-78 Westbound is backed up a long ways with an accident blocking a lane at Stone Mountain Park.
  • An accident is backing up I-285 East at the Cobb Cloverleaf, making things slow as far back as South Atlanta Road on the eastside Perimeter. On the other side of the Cloverleaf, I-285 East is crawling almost the entire way to GA-400, with an accident reported at Roswell Road.
  • I-75 North approaching the Cloverleaf is also slow.
  • Things are backed up going down I-575 South from Woodstock, with an accident reported near Shallowford Road.
  • I-75 South is blocked up further north with two left lanes closed after a six-car wreck at Chastain Road.
  • Flooding was reported on Crest Valley Drive in Atlanta, closing it in both directions from Powers Ferry Road to Northside Drive.
  • Traffic is slow along most of the eastside Perimeter on I-285 North, from US-78 to Glenwood Road in DeKalb County. An accident was reported near Covington Highway.
  • I-285 South to the south of I-85 is slow with an accident blocking a lane at Henderson Road, as well.
  • On the opposite end of things on the westside Perimeter, a broken-down tractor-trailer is blocking the shoulder and slowing things down on I-285 South at Cascade Road. Things are backed up as far as Benjamin E. Mays Drive.
  • I-75 South is backing up with volume through the Downtown Connector, with things slow as far back as Northside Drive, where an accident was reported in the area.
