A number of accidents have slowed down commuters heading into uptown Charlotte this morning.

An accident at Wilkinson Boulevard and Ashley Road has traffic slowed to 37 mph.

Meanwhile, there is a disabled vehicle at Mount Holly Huntersville Road and Belhaven Boulevard that has stalled traffic.

Another accident on I-77 South between Brookshire Freeway and I-277 John Belk Freeway has created stop and go traffic there.

And shortly after 7 a.m., an accident occurred at Sharon Amity and Randolph Road.

Earlier accidents - including one at Albemarle Road and Farm Pond Lane as well as another at I-77 and Sunset Road - have already been cleared this morning..

Traffic is building around I-85 and Billy Graham Parkway South as well as inbound Highway 16 and I-77 North near Clanton Road.

Expect delays as well on the I-485 inner loop in south Mecklenburg County.

Meanwhile, a portion of Trade Street in Matthews (near Charles Street at John Street) is closed for railroad repairs, which is affecting traffic flow there.

Commuters should also expect delays near Highway 51 and Rea Road due to ongoing road work there.

Check back here for traffic updates throughout the morning.
