A trailer full of scrap metal came uncoupled from the semi hauling it on southbound I-5 in front of the Everett Mall this morning leading to traffic troubles in Everett. It happened about 9:30 AM and only one lane of southbound traffic was getting by past the scene. Traffic on I-5 backed up solid to 41st street. Broadway, Colby and Evergreen Way all filled up with cars trying to avoid the freeway. The rig was cleared from I-5 around 11 AM but it took another 30 minutes for the backup to diminish.
