13th St NW reopens

Mark Berman

Happy Friday, Washington area. After the extreme warmth of the last few days, today it'll be a relatively brisk low-to-mid 90s. Since we all can't change our morning commute to involve a drive down South Beach, here's a look at the headaches facing commuters this morning. [This post will be updated.]

9:30 a.m. Update: McPhate reports that it was a bag of garbage. The streets are reopening.

9:10 a.m. Update: There is a report of a suspicious package in the area. The Post's Mike McPhate is headed to the scene.


Police activity has closed 13th Street between K and Eye streets in Northwest.

8:50 A.M. UPDATE:

-- Same things: I-495 North is slow at I-66, I-395 North is crowded at the 14th Street Bridge and Duke Street.
