Inner Loop delays in VA

Mark Berman

8:35 A.M. UPDATE:

-- The left lane of I-495 North has reopened at I-66, but it's still badly backed up on the Inner Loop heading that way.

-- I-395 North remains sluggish en route to the 14th Street Bridge.

8:05 A.M. UPDATE:

-- A disabled vehicle is blocking the right shoulder on I-395 South at Washington Boulevard. Traffic heading into Virginia could see delays.

-- I-95 North is backed up near Telegraph Road.

7:40 A.M. UPDATE:

-- There are still backups on I-495 North/the Inner Loop heading to I-66. The left lane is still blocked by the earlier accident, so expect the delays to linger.

-- I-395 North is also very jammed up at the 14th Street Bridge.

-- An accident on I-66 East shortly before the Beltway is blocking the right shoulder, which could add to the perpetual delays in this area.

7:10 A.M. UPDATE:

-- The accident on I-495 North/the Inner Loop is still blocking the left lane at I-66.

-- Heading in the other direction, there's also backups on I-495 South/the Outer Loop at Arlington Boulevard.

6:45 A.M. UPDATE:

-- The I-270 lane has reopened at Falls Road.

-- An accident on I-495 North/the Inner Loop is blocking the left lane and left shoulder near I-66.

6:15 A.M. UPDATE:

-- The I-95 North lanes have reopened.

-- The I-270 North lane is still blocked at Falls Road.


Another week is upon us, which means another morning rush hour to navigate. Check back here throughout the morning for updates on all of the headaches and problems facing commuters today.

-- Roadwork is blocking one I-270 North local lane at Falls Road.

-- Roadwork is also blocking two lanes of I-95 North at Powder Mills Road.

-- The Douglass Bridge and the Chain Bridge, which both closed this weekend as part of long-term repair programs, were both scheduled to reopen this morning at 5 a.m. They both reopened early, according to the District Department of Transportation, so they should be fine for commuters today.
