Accident closes S. Dakota Ave NE

By Mark Berman

An accident and oil spill at 3110 South Dakota Avenue in Northeast Washington has closed South Dakota Avenue between Myrtle and Rhode Island avenues, according to the District Department of Transportation. The closures are expected to remain through the morning rush hour, so avoid the area if possible.

This accident, occurring just west of the Maryland/District border, could cause backups on inbound Rhode Island Avenue, so if that's your route you should expect delays. If your usual route involves South Dakota Avenue, try taking Eastern Avenue instead.

Hey Doc, I am baffled by this suggestion to take Eastern Avenue. If your taking South Dakota Ave. into town, you are most likely coming by way of I-295. One can't get to Eastern Ave. from that route unless you come all the way in on New York Ave., then head up Bladensburg Road. and then take a left on Eastern. But why do that if you want to go downtown??
