An overturned 18-wheeler on South Cobb Drive has caused the closure of the southbound entrance ramp onto Interstate 285.
Officer Mike Bowman with Cobb Police said the call came in around 11:30 p.m.
The driver, who was not injured in the accident, was heading northbound on South Cobb Drive and turning left onto southbound I-285 when the tractor trailer overturned.
They are unloading the wheels inside the truck at this time and will remove the truck afterwards.
Bowman said they have no clue how long it will take to open the roadway back up.
In the meantime, there is only one southbound lane on South Cobb Drive open and the ramp will remain closed until the tractor trailer has been cleared.
DOT, HERO and Cobb Police are on the scene to help with traffic.
