Accident on I-395 N at 3rd St

Mark Berman

8:35 A.M. UPDATE:

-- I-395 North remains very backed up at the 14th Street Bridge. The delays really stretch as far back as Duke Street, from what I can see on the cameras, so expect massive, massive delays if that's part of your commute. And it's no better as you cross over into the District, with big backups and congestion along that route.

-- Two lanes are still closed on northbound Frederick Avenue at Professional Drive in Gaithersburg.

-- All lanes on New York Avenue at Florida Avenue have reopened.

8:10 A.M. UPDATE:

-- An accident on I-495 North at G.W. Parkway is blocking the left lane and left shoulder.

-- There are still big delays on I-395 North at the 14th Street Bridge.

7:50 A.M. UPDATE:

The accident on New York Avenue has seemingly already been cleared, and the only lane closure from paving in the far right lane, the Post's Michael Bolden reports.

7:30 A.M. UPDATE:

-- New York Avenue only has one lane open heading west at Florida Avenue due to an accident.

-- An accident on I-95 North in Dumfries is blocking the right lane and right shoulder.

-- I-495 North is now backed up all the way to I-66, as per usual.

7:05 A.M. UPDATE:

-- There are backups on I-495 North leading to Gallows Road.

-- I-395 North is also still backed up heading across the 14th Street Bridge. Expect those delays to linger for a while.

6:45 A.M. UPDATE:

-- One lane on northbound Frederick Avenue has reopened at Professional Drive in Gaithersburg, leaving two lanes still closed.

-- I-395 North is already backed up at the 14th Street Bridge.

-- The lanes have reopened on I-95 North to the north of Occoquan.

6:30 A.M. UPDATE:

An accident on I-395 North before the main entrance to the northbound 3rd Street Tunnel is blocking all lanes. Expect big delays.

6:10 A.M. UPDATE:

-- Now the right lane and center lane are blocked on I-95 North to the north of Occoquan. Expect some delays as you approach this area.

-- A disabled vehicle is on the right shoulder of I-495 North at Braddock Road.


Good morning, commuters. Have you seen this video of a rescue on the Metro tracks yet? If not, go watch it, then come back here for your morning traffic update. It'll be a sunny and warm one today. Check back here throughout the morning for updates on the morning rush.

-- All lanes of northbound Frederick Avenue are blocked at Professional Drive in Gaithersburg due to a utility problem.
