I-495 N slow at I-66

Mark Berman

Another day, another chance to venture into the blistering summer heat. Even though it's slightly cooler out there today (the relative cold of the mid-90s!), it's still not going to be a comfy commute for anybody. Here are the headaches and snafus on the road today (this post will be updated):

8:40 A.M. UPDATE:

-- I-395 North is still sluggish at the 14th Street Bridge and Duke Street.

-- I-495 North is still crawling at I-66.

8:10 A.M. UPDATE:

-- The traffic on I-495 North heading to I-66 is even worse.

-- The left lane on I-395 North has reopened at Washington Boulevard.

7:45 A.M. UPDATE:

-- I-495 North is very congested leading to I-66.

-- I-395 North is still sluggish at the 14th Street Bridge, while one lane remains blocked at Washington Boulevard.
