CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WRCB) – An overpass collapse on the I-75 southbound/I-24 westbound exchange is causing major traffic headaches.

If you are heading anywhere south on spring break you will want to be aware of this.

According to WRCB, a concrete railing collapsed onto the roadway from the I-75 South interchange. All lanes are currently blocked on I-75 north to I-24 west. Responders have also closed the ramp from I-75 south to Atlanta at the split.

A vehicle was struck by the railing and one person was transported to the hospital.
