"There's really no place for that water to go, so it's really causing an issue," Burns said.
The water has now receded.
The connector isn't the only place that dealt with flooding. The Atlanta Fire Department warned of flooding on Northside Drive.
On North Avenue, fire crews had to rescue a person who got caught inside their car on a flooded street near Central Park Place.
The fire department warned drivers not to drive through flood water.
