ORIGINAL POST:

Good morning, commuters! Today will be a bit cloudier than the last few days. Here's a look at some of the headaches that might impact your commute and some other notes for you to be aware of as the morning progresses.

-- An accident on the Inner Loop at S. Van Dorn Street is blocking the right three lanes and only leaving the far left lane open. The left center lane, right center lane and right lane are all closed, as well as the right shoulder.

-- The final placement of asphalt and road markings on Ohio Drive was scheduled to occur between 11 p.m. Friday, Nov. 12, and 5 a.m. this morning. The entire roadway from the Roosevelt Bridge to Ohio Drive and eastward on Independence Avenue to 17th Street was shut throughout the weekend. That should wrap up the reconstruction project that has slowed commuter traffic since the spring.

-- As part of the 1th Street Bridge reconstruction project, O Street SE will be closed between 11th and 12th streets from 8 p.m. tonight to 5 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 23 (Thanksgiving week).

-- The Skins host the Eagles tonight for Monday Night Football. Here's our suggestions for getting to FedEx Field.
