I-395 South blocked at Duke St

Mark Berman

It's Friday of a holiday weekend. Will the roads be less crowded with some people taking off extra-early for the holiday? Will an influx of tourists fill our streets and trains? Time will tell. Check back with this post throughout the morning rush hour for updated information about your commute.

8:50 A.M. UPDATE:

-- Another accident on I-395 South is blocking the left lane and left shoulder at Duke Street.

-- The earlier accident on I-395 South before the interchange is now just blocking the right shoulder.

-- A disabled vehicle on I-495/Inner Loop at Georgia Avenue could cause delays.

8:30 A.M. UPDATE:

-- An accident on I-395 South just before the Springfield Interchange is blocking the left lane and left shoulder. Expect backups.

8:20 A.M. UPDATE:

-- I-395 North remains clogged at Seminary Road.

-- And the accident on Rhode Island Avenue at Florida Avenue could still slow inbound traffic.

8:05 A.M. UPDATE:

-- The accident on the Inner Loop at Branch Avenue has been cleared.

7:50 A.M. UPDATE:

-- An accident on Rhode Island Avenue at Florida Avenue might cause inbound delays, according to the District Department of Transportation.

-- An accident on the Inner Loop at Branch Avenue could cause delays there as well.

-- I-395 North is pretty congested leading to Seminary Road.

7:25 A.M. UPDATE:

-- An accident on I-95 South to the south of the Springfield Interchange is blocking the left lane.

7 A.M. UPDATE:

-- The accident on I-95 South near Telegraph Road has been cleared.

6:35 A.M. UPDATE:

-- No changes in Potomac or on I-95 South near Telegraph Road.

-- For anybody leaving town for the holiday weekend and heading out extra early: An accident on I-95 South in Lorton is blocking the left lane.

6:15 A.M. UPDATE:

-- Same situations in Potomac and on I-95 South. The water main breaks in Potomac might cause delays, while I-95 South might see some congestion due to the accident on the side of the road.

ORIGINAL POST:

-- A tractor trailer accident on I-95 South at Telegraph Road is blocking the right shoulder and might cause delays.

-- The water main break in Potomac could cause concerns beyond limiting the water usage of people in Montgomery and Prince George's counties. Work being done to repair the pipe near Tuckerman Lane and Gainsborough Road in Potomac could slow traffic. Let us know in the comments below if you see or hear of any delays.
