Wrecks are being reported across the Charlotte region this Tuesday morning, with wet streets possibly contributing to the problem.
The worst spots at 8 a.m. are inbound East Independence Boulevard, inbound Providence Road and southbound Interstate 77 in Cabarrus County.
A wreck is blocking the right lane of Independence Boulevard near Eastway Drive. At 8 a.m., traffic was snarled all the way back to Idlewild Road.
Inbound Providence Road was closed earlier at Sharon Amity Road because of a wreck, but latest reports indicate the lanes are open again. Regardless, traffic is backed up badly.
