Doraville police said all lanes of Buford Highway were closed at 4:30 p.m., just in time for rush hour on a day when metro Atlanta roads are choked by snow and ice.

The closure is at McElroy Road.

“Georgia Power and DeKalb County Traffic Engineers have been notified,” police said in a Facebook post. “Please avoid the area and don’t get on the roads unless it’s an emergency!”
