Here are some alternate routes drivers can take.

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — A prisoner transport bus overturned on I-85 southbound past Sugarloaf Parkway Tuesday morning, according to Gwinnett County police dispatch.

Multiple lanes were shut down for more than an hour as crews worked to clear the scene. 

Traffic Tracker Crash Clark said morning commuters could use Buford Highway, Satellite Boulevard, Lawrenceville Highway, or Peachtree Industrial Boulevard to get around the wreck.

The inmates were transferred to a different vehicle. One inmate was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

Traffic officials are also working on another wreck involving an overturned vehicle at Hamilton Mill near Highway 124. The incident is just south of I-85. Delays are also expected in the area.
