6th St NE blocked at C St

Mark Berman

8:35 A.M. UPDATE:

-- The accident on I-270 South has been cleared.

-- I-495 North remains very sluggish moving towards I-66.

-- I-395 North is still slow for much of the trek from Springfield Interchange to the 14th Street Bridge.

-- 6th Street northbound is still blocked in Northeast at C Street, with traffic being diverted onto C Street eastbound.

8:20 A.M. UPDATE:

-- An accident on I-270 South at Montgomery Village Avenue in Gaithersburg could cause problems for southbound commuters.

-- In addition to I-395 North issues, I-395 South might be slow because of an accident near the King Street exit. The southbound right shoulder is blocked.


-- The lanes on I-95 South to the south of MD 198 have reopened after being closed due to an accident earlier this morning.

-- I-395 North is still jammed at the 14th Street Bridge, slow at other spots and generally troublesome for commuters.

-- And I-495 North remains very slow moving towards I-66.

7:40 A.M. UPDATE:

-- 6th Street northbound is still blocked at C Street heading in Northeast.

-- The I-95 South lanes are still blocked by the earlier accident.

-- I-495 North is even more congested than before, with traffic very slow moving towards I-66.

-- I-395 North is still sluggish, particularly at the 14th Street Bridge.

7:20 A.M. UPDATE:

-- Northbound 6th Street is blocked in Northeast at C Street; traffic is being diverted eastbound onto C Street.

-- The accident on I-95 South to the south of MD 198 is blocking two southbound lanes and both shoulders.

-- Traffic is badly backed up on I-395 North at the 14th Street Bridge. It's also very congested throughout most of I-395 North, so that roadway is looking extra-slow for the second day in a row.

-- I-495 North is very slow heading to I-66.

6:50 A.M. UPDATE:

-- I-495 North is getting slow heading to Gallows Road.

-- It's still slow and touchy on I-395 North at King Street, with traffic and congestion building behind that spot.

-- For Maryland drivers, an accident on I-95 South to the south of MD 198 could cause problems.

6:35 A.M. UPDATE:

-- There's congestion on I-395 North at King Street, and it's stretching back to Duke Street.

6:15 A.M. UPDATE:

-- There's congestion on I-395 North around Duke Street, causing some backups on the early part of I-395 North.

-- I-66 East is already slow at Nutley Street.

6:05 A.M. UPDATE:

The roads are still quiet as Tuesday morning's rush hour gets underway.

That problem at 6th street was causing problems as far away as NC and C NE, and Constitution inbound was a nightmare. Turned a 25 minute commute into 60+.

Any clue what is going on with 395 the past few days (today, Monday, Friday, Thursday)? Usually I leave my house at the Seminary Rd exit at 830 and I'm at Dupont by 9 (taking 8B, to 110, up 23rd street), but the past few days have had horrendous traffic on 8B, 8A (going rt 50 or through roslyn). Is there construction? Thanks!
