AT 5:35 P.M. The holiday rush hour traffic has eased in both directions.
AT 5:15 P.M. The accident near Main Street and I-75 has been cleared but the holiday rush hour is upon us. Traffic is slow in both directions.
An accident on I-75 southbound at Exit 288 (Main Street) has traffic snarled in that direction, per Cartersville Police (“no serious injuries”). Also, northbound I-75 above Actworth into Emerson is no picnic either at 3 p.m. Please use caution in this area and consider jumping to U.S. 41 — either direction — until further notice.
