Police activity on New York Ave.

Mark Berman

9:15 A.M. UPDATE:

On New York Avenue inbound, D.C. police are conducting an enforcement action in the local lanes before Bladensburg Road. If you're taking a shortcut trying to get around the traffic on the main road, you won't save any time.

On New York Avenue outbound, several police vehicles have a box truck pulled over and are blocking two lanes just east of Florida Avenue.

8:30 A.M. UPDATE:

-- Two of three eastbound lanes of Silver Hill Road are still blocked near Silver Park Drive in Suitland (this is just west of the Suitland Parkway, impacting traffic heading towards District Heights and beyond).

-- The water main repair on New Hampshire Avenue southbound is still blocking one lane and one of the shoulders between Shaw Avenue and Thomas Drive in Colesville.

-- An accident on I-95/Inner Loop at Indian Head Highway is blocking one lane and one of the shoulders.

8 A.M. UPDATE:

-- An accident on the Inner Loop at Rhode Island Avenue is blocking one Inner Loop lane.

7:35 A.M. UPDATE:

-- Crews are working to repair a broken 8 inch water main on Elmira Street and South Capitol Terrace in Southwest, but traffic shouldn't be impacted, according to D.C. Water.

-- I-495 North/the Inner Loop is really backed up at I-66.

7:15 A.M. UPDATE:

-- The emergency roadwork on New Hampshire Avenue southbound is a water main repair. Again, it's blocking one lane and one of the shoulders between Shaw Avenue and Thomas Drive in Colesville.

-- There's a vehicle fire on the shoulder of I-95/Inner Loop to the south of Allentown Road (right around where the Beltway passes Andrews Air Force Base).

-- I-66 East has some nasty backups leading to Nutley Street.

6:50 A.M. UPDATE:

-- The accident on I-495 West has been cleared.

-- The emergency roadwork on New Hampshire Avenue southbound is blocking one lane and one of the shoulders between Shaw Avenue and Thomas Drive in Colesville.

-- There's also bad congestion on I-95 North leading to Newington, shortly before the Springfield Interchange.

6:40 A.M. UPDATE:

-- An accident on I-495 West after New Hampshire Avenue is blocking one Outer Loop lane and of the shoulders.

-- There's emergency roadwork on New Hampshire Avenue southbound in Colesville between Shaw Avenue and Thomas Drive.

6:20 A.M. UPDATE:

-- The I-95 lanes have reopened in Laurel.

ORIGINAL POST:

Good morning, commuters! Unlike yesterday, travelers won't have to stop and vote during their trips to and from work. The weather is supposed to be lovely. So check back here throughout the morning for tips and updates on your morning commute.

-- Due to a utility problem, two of three eastbound lanes of Silver Hill Road are blocked near Silver Park Drive in Suitland (this is just west of the Suitland Parkway, impacting traffic heading towards District Heights and beyond).

-- Roadwork is blocking one lane and one of the shoulders of I-95 South at Sandy Spring Road in Laurel.

Why no coverage of Metro's lack of announcing delays on the red Line this morning? My commute took 40 minutes longer then normal.
