UPDATE @ 2:57 a.m.
Both directions of U.S. 35 have reopened after briefly closing due to high waters Saturday, according to dispatchers.
Waters have receded in the areas of James H. McGee and I-75, however, water is still high in some portions of U.S. 35.
East and westbound U.S. 35 at I-75 is blocked while crews address heavy flooding in the area.
Crews were dispatched to the highway around 2 a.m. on reports of impassible roads and heavy flooding.
Initial reports indicate traffic is being diverted from U.S. 35 to I-75 north, according to initial reports.
Callers into this newsroom have also reported high waters on eastbound U.S. 35. at James H. McGee.
We will continue to monitor highway conditions and post updates here.
