ORIGINAL POST:

The roads look quiet so far this morning. But there are still potential delays awaiting commuters, including:

-- The new traffic pattern on New York and Florida avenues in Northeast. Here's a roundup of what that will mean for you.

-- More potential delays at the 14th Street Bridge. A barrier on the bridge's right side heading from Virginia into the District could slow traffic at this already-pesky spot on the morning drive. For a visual idea, head over here and click "Phase 2."
