DEKALB COUNTY, Ga.– Drivers should expect major delays coming into the city on Interstate 285.
Before 6 a.m. on Friday, a FedEx tractor-trailer carrying 21,000 pounds of cargo overturned on I-285 just before I-675. All lanes are blocked on I-285 westbound and drivers should expect major delays and backups all the way to I-20. This is on the southeast side of the perimeter.
One way to avoid the worst of it is to take I-20 to Moreland Avenue then head south to I-285. Another alternative involves taking I-20 to the Downtown Connector south and then hitting I-285.
