U.S. 1 northbound closed

12:55 p.m. Update: The accidents on Route 28 and Interstate 66 have been moved to the shoulders. But the investigation on U.S. 1 in Maryland continues, with two-way traffic operating in the southbound lanes.

Original post: Accidents around the region:

-- U.S. 1 northbound between Fox Street and Hollywood Road is closed due to an accident involving a motorcycle. Maryland transportation officials say one of the southbound lanes has been reversed to keep traffic moving, but you should expect heavy delays in both directions.

-- An accident on Route 28 near Dulles Airport is causing delays for Virginia drivers. That accident involves a tractor-trailer and a fuel spill. There are multiple lanes closed.

-- Multiple lanes are also closed on I-66 West near Chain Bridge Road due to an accident. Only the right lanes gets by. Eastbound traffic is also slow after Route 50.
