Traffic snarled on Ga. 20 as dump truck flips near Lowe’s. Photo, map and detour.

 

A dump truck flipped on Shorter Avenue just west of Lowe’s on Tuesday afternoon. The accident continues to block traffic — in both directions in some areas — on the main artery into and out of Alabama just before the evening rush hour. Photo by Stuart Hornsby.

Traffic is backed up on Shorter Avenue after a dump truck flipped near Lowe’s and Rome Cinemas. Google Traffic continues to show slow or stalled traffic in both the east and west lanes at 4:40 p.m.

A long westbound or eastbound detour: Huffaker to Garden Lakes, then left to Woods Road and left again until you rejoin Ga. 20. Some heavy traffic already is visible on Huffaker at the Garden Lakes intersection.
