ATLANTA - Some of the lines of tractor-trailers and cars stuck on icy interstates in Atlanta as Georgia Department of Transportation have been cleared.
DOT crews are struggling to reach trouble spots throughout metro Atlanta because of clogged traffic and treacherous roads. Trucker Vernon Cook of Myrtle Beach, S.C., said Tuesday he was sitting still on the Interstate 285 ramp to I-75 south for almost 24 hours.
Cook and dozens of other trucks were moved Tuesday afternoon after being stuck since Monday morning
DOT spokeswoman Jill Goldberg said crews are doing the best they can and frigid temperatures are causing areas that have been de-iced to freeze again.
