Lanes reopen on NY Ave, N. Cap St
9:10 A.M. UPDATE:
-- There is still congestion on inbound New York Avenue, but traffic is visibly moving.
-- I-395 North is incredibly slow once you get past Glebe Road. It continues all the way to the bridge, so expect delays if that's your route.
-- The Inner Loop is pretty slow leading to I-66. Both directions of the Beltway are moving smoothly near Colesville Road and Georgia Avenue in Maryland.
9:05 A.M. UPDATE:
All lanes have reopened on New York Avenue and N. Capitol Street. The ramps from N. Capitol Street to M and O streets have also reopened.
8:45 A.M. UPDATE:
-- New York Avenue is still very, very backed up heading into the District. Traffic stretches at least as far back as Bladensburg Road, from what we can see on a traffic camera.
8:30 A.M. UPDATE:
Traffic is now getting by on the left two lanes on westbound New York Avenue at N. Capitol Street.
8:15 A.M. UPDATE:
A disabled vehicle is blocking the right lane of the Inner Loop/I-495 North at Leesburg Pike.
8:05 A.M. UPDATE:
Traffic on westbound New York Avenue is getting by in the left lane, with the right lanes blocked.
8 A.M. UPDATE:
The Post's Michael Bolden reports that traffic on inbound New York Avenue is backed up at least as far back as Montana Avenue. Meanwhile, the ramps from northbound N. Capitol Street are closed at M and O streets.
If you can do it, I'd recommend heading south on Bladensburg Road to H Street, which appears from the traffic cameras to be moving smoothly. If you need to head north, you could try taking Montana Avenue to Rhode Island Avenue.
As for commuters who need N. Capitol Street northbound: You could head a bit west to New Jersey Avenue and take that north, then make a right onto Rhode Island Avenue to reconnect with N. Capitol Street north of the accident site.
7:50 A.M. UPDATE:
-- An accident at New York Avenue and N. Capitol Street in Northeast is blocking northbound N. Capitol Street, while westbound New York Avenue is down to just one lane, according to the District Department of Transportation.
-- An accident on the Outer Loop/I-495 South is blocking the right lane of the ramp to I-66 West (exit 49-C). Expect big backups as you approach that exit and particularly if you are taking that ramp.
7:20 A.M. UPDATE:
East-West Highway has reopened in Chevy Chase, Md.
7 A.M. UPDATE:
The Inner Loop is backed up at Gallows Road. (The disabled vehicle at the Dulles Toll Road from earlier has been cleared.)
6:40 A.M. UPDATE:
There's a disabled vehicle on the Inner Loop/I-495 North at the Dulles Toll Road. It's on the shoulder, but this could still cause problems, so expect some congestion in that area.
6:15 A.M. UPDATE:
-- An accident on I-95 North in Occoquan is blocking the right shoulder, but there might be additional delays in the area.
-- East-West Highway is still blocked in Chevy Chase.
