I-285 E in Sandy Springs: Atlanta feels the impact of fatal pedestrian accident

Though all eastbound lanes of I-285 at New Northside Drive have reopened following a fatal pedestrian accident, significant delays remain.

AJC WSB Traffic posted these tweets:

I-75/85/nb jammed Hwy. 166 to Buckhead (the whole way), I-85/sb packed from Clairmont, GA-400/sb slows from Lenox.

As ppl. avoided I-285/nb (Inner Loop) – I-75/85/nb packed from Hwy. 166 to I-85/GA-400 split. I-75/sb jammed from Marietta to Midtown.

And there’s more bad news, according to this tweet:

Injury crash in two right lanes I-85/sb south of GA-400 – adding to jam. Just what we needed.
