K & I streets NW reopening

Mark Berman

9: 55 A.M. UPDATE: Streets in the vicinity are reportedly reopening. Traffic control officers are on the scene near the Washington Convention Center.

8:55 A.M. UPDATE: The closure is causing Circulator buses to detour between Ninth and New York and Seventh and Massachusetts, according to the District Department of Transportation.

8:43 A.M. UPDATE: D.C. police are investigating a suspicious package in the 800 block of K Street NW. As a result, K and I streets are closed to traffic between Seventh and Ninth streets.

8:30 A.M. UPDATE:

-- Another reminder that drivers on the G.W. Parkway will run into lane closures near Daingerfield Island due to the road work project (see the bottom of this post for more details).

-- An accident on the Inner Loop after Baltimore Avenue is blocking one of the shoulders and causing delays.

-- The 800 block of K Street is blocked in Northwest due to police activity.

-- South Capitol Street is still a headache at the Douglass Bridge due to an earlier accident.

8:05 A.M. UPDATE:
-- I-66 East is jammed up at the Beltway.

7:45 A.M. UPDATE:
-- South Capitol Street is still a headache at the Douglass Bridge due to an earlier accident.

-- The Outer Loop accident has been cleared.

7:20 A.M. UPDATE:
-- There are still headaches on South Capitol Street inbound at the Douglass Bridge.

-- An accident on the Outer Loop at New Hampshire Avenue could slow traffic.

6:55 A.M. UPDATE:
-- An accident on South Capitol Street inbound at the Douglass Bridge is going to cause traffic problems.

6:30 A.M. UPDATE:
-- I-66 East is jammed up at Chain Bridge Road.

-- I-395 North is congested at Duke Street.

-- A road work project beginning today on the George Washington Parkway is going to cause some traffic delays. Reconstruction is scheduled to begin on the access interchange at the Daingerfield Island Marina and the entrance road leading to the Indigo Landing restaurant (about a half mile south of Reagan National Airport).

Parkway drivers heading south to Daingerfield Island will not be able to turn left at the interchange. They should continue south and turn right at the exit to Slater's Lane and then turn left to the northbound parkway to Daingerfield Island.

Lane closings on both sides of the parkway are scheduled for 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., but at least one lane in each direction will be open at all times. (Thanks to Bob "The Doc" Thomson for this.)

-- Debris on U.S. 50 West before Church Road could slow westbound traffic.
