UPDATE: I-285 reopens after multivehicle crash in DeKalb 

All lanes have reopened after a multivehicle crash caused major I-285 Inner Loop delays through DeKalb County during the peak of the Wednesday morning rush.

Two tractor-trailers and at least seven other vehicles were involved in the wreck, according to the WSB 24-hour Traffic Center. It’s not clear if anyone was injured in the crash, which blocked westbound lanes at Flat Shoals Road and affected traffic for commuters in DeKalb and Rockdale counties starting about 8:15 a.m.

At one point, heavy delays started back at Memorial Drive, and traffic was diverted onto I-20 West, the Traffic Center reported.

I-285 West reopened just after 10:20 a.m.

While the scene is clear, the Traffic Center said delays remain.
