This fallen sign led to blocked traffic on Interstate 85 north at the intersection with Ga. Highway 316 near Duluth and Lawrenceville. 

A fallen sign shut down Interstate 85 northbound Wednesday at the intersection with Ga. Highway 316.

The sign, which indicates local exits for the new express lanes requiring a Peach Pass, was struck by a tractor-trailer and extended across all lanes of traffic. Crews are currently working to remove the sign.

Traffic is being diverted to Exit 105, which allows vehicles to bypass the scene and get back on I-85.
