Good morning, commuters! Spot any Autobots on your way home from work last night? The Transformers continue to swarm the nation's capital for the "Transformers 3" film shoot. (The filming of a Michael Bay movie in town caused this obvious-yet-hilarious D.C. Fire and Emergency Medical Services Tweet warning of "possible pyrotechnics." Michael Bay has to issue the same warning when he flosses.) So how are things this morning? Check back here throughout the morning rush for updates on your commute.
-- An accident on I-66 East after Sudley Road is blocking the right lane and shoulder.
-- The ramp from Route 123 to the Inner Loop closed last night. Today, all four lanes of the Inner Loop will shift to the left over Chain Bridge Road. Once motorists cross, the lanes will shift back to connect with the existing Beltway. Drivers exiting to Tysons/Vienna should be prepared to encounter a two-lane ramp leading to a new traffic signal.
