Beltway lanes blocked in VA

Mark Berman

Here's a roundup of some of the headaches commuters will face this morning:

8:55 A.M. UPDATE:

-- The lanes remain closed on I-95 North at Van Dorn Street. This is obviously causing delays, so again, avoid the area if you can.

8:25 A.M. UPDATE:

-- The two left lanes on I-95 North continue to be blocked at Van Dorn Street, due to the tractor trailer accident. Backups are even worse, so avoid this if you can.

-- Better news a bit north on the Beltway: The earlier accident on I-495 North at the Dulles Toll Road is cleared, so ramps and lanes should be open.

8:05 A.M. UPDATE:

-- A tractor trailer accident on I-95 North/the Beltway at Van Dorn Street is blocking the left lane, left center lane and left shoulder. There are already backups, and you can expect it to get worse.

-- The Dulles Toll Road entrance ramp and end of the merge lane onto I-495 North are still blocked.

7:45 A.M. UPDATE:

-- The accident on I-495 North at the Dulles Toll Road/267 is blocking the north entrance ramp to I-495 North. It's also blocking the end of the merge lane from the toll road. So yes, you should expect delays in that area.

7:25 A.M. UPDATE:

-- An accident on I-495 North at the Dulles Toll Road/267 is blocking the right lane and right shoulder.

-- I-495 North is also delayed heading towards I-66, like it always is.

-- And I-395 North is even more backed up at the 14th Street Bridge now! Fun.


-- The backups on I-395 North have gotten a bit worse at Duke Street, Seminary Road and the 14th Street Bridge.

6:35 A.M. UPDATE:

-- The I-395 North delays are spreading. Now there's congestion at the 14th Street Bridge and Seminary Road. Things are still slowest at Duke Street right now.

6:15 A.M. UPDATE:

-- I-395 North is already crowded and slow at Duke Street. Of course it is.

-- The I-95 North lanes have reopened at Cherry Hill Road.


-- I-95 North is partially blocked at Cherry Hill Road. Due to roadwork, the right lane and right shoulder are blocked. This is just north of the Beltway in Beltsville.
