8:45 A.M. UPDATE:

-- There's an accident on the Outer Loop at the Anacostia Freeway.

-- I-95 North is backed up from Telegraph Road to the Springfield Interchange.

-- I-66 East remains backed up in the same spots: Sudley Road, the Beltway and Glebe Road.

-- I-395 North is also still pretty congested near Duke Street.

8:30 A.M. UPDATE:

Congestion on I-66 in Arlington: There are still notable delays on I-66 East at Glebe Road, while I-66 West is also seeing some backups at Sycamore Street.

8 A.M. UPDATE:

-- There's debris in the road on the Inner Loop at the I-270 Spur, so expect some delays in that vicinity.

-- I-95 North is pretty congested in Woodbridge.

-- I-66 East remains troublesome as you approach Sudley Road and the Beltway, so keep delays in mind as you set out.

7:30 A.M. UPDATE:

-- The accident on I-270 South has been cleared.

-- I-66 East is primarily backed up at Sudley Road and the Beltway now, so there are still delays, just in slightly different spots.

-- The Inner Loop is also congested approaching I-66, so you can expect that to remain and get worse as the morning continues.

7 A.M. UPDATE:

-- An accident on I-270 South could cause delays after W. Montgomery Avenue.

-- I-395 North is backed up at Duke Street, and the shoulder is still blocked.

-- I-66 East is now congested at Sudley Road, Chain Bridge Road and Glebe Road.

6:35 A.M. UPDATE:

-- I-66 East is congested at Sudley Road and also at Glebe Road in Arlington.

-- There's a disabled vehicle on I-395 North at Duke Street; it's on the shoulder, but you never know what kind of delays could ensue, so be aware.

6:15 A.M. UPDATE:

I-95 North is very backed up in Woodbridge.

ORIGINAL POST:

Good morning, commuters. We hope you had a lovely holiday weekend and didn't get caught up in too much traffic during your time off. The return to work will feature nicer weather (in terms of sun and temperatures in the 50s) than we've had over the last few chilly days. Check back here throughout the morning for updates on your morning commute.

-- Remember that in Virginia, the High Occupancy Vehicle lane restrictions on I-66, I-95 and I-395 are in effect again.

-- The District Department of Transportation plans to shift lanes at the intersection of H and 8th streets NE beginning this morning to accommodate the reconstruction of the roadway and the installation of streetcar tracks along H Street.

Traffic restrictions at the H Street intersection with 6th Street have been set for today and Tuesday. From 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day, the 700 block of 6th Street, which is one-way northbound, will be available only to local residential traffic. Drivers can use 5th Street as an alternative.

The lane shifts will be in effect for about nine weeks. The 8th Street traffic across H Street will be maintained throughout this work, although it is likely to be slowed somewhat by the lane restrictions, DDOT says.
