GDOT crews busy across N. Ga.; some lanes becoming impassable on I-75

By The Associated Press
Snow began falling across north Georgia in the hours just before daybreak today, with some lanes becoming impassable on I-75 in the northwestern corner of the state - and Georgia Department of Transportation crews are busy in several counties.

From Rabun County to Gainesville, Cartersville and Dalton, snow, heavy at times, was falling.

State transportation officials say that some lanes of Interstate 75 between Chattanooga and Atlanta's northwest suburbs were becoming impassable.

Authorities say that some of the iciest conditions were being reported around Calhoun.

The Georgia Department of Transportation reported that some lanes of southbound I-75 were blocked in the Resaca area just north of Calhoun shortly before 7:00.

Nearby, on the east edge of Calhoun, authorities reported that some northbound lanes of I-75 were blocked.

WSB-TV reported that vehicles were using one lane on the interstate to get through the area.

We ask you to please stay home and not drive unless it is an emergency," said Bayne Smith, District Engineer for Northeast Georgia, in the 8:00 update issued by the district office in Gainesville.
