Big delays on inner loop in VA

By Mark Berman
Mark Berman

9:05 A.M. UPDATE:
There is a disabled vehicle on the inner loop on the Maryland side of the American Legion Bridge. Expect delays.

Delays continue on the inner loop approaching I-66.

The closed lanes on the Dulles Toll Road have reopened.

The I-95 North lane also reopened at the Springfield Interchange.

8:35 A.M. UPDATE:
The inner loop delays now start at I-66 and stretch back to the Springfield Interchange.

I-395 North is also jammed up at the 14th Street Bridge and several other points between the interchange and the bridge.

8:15 A.M. UPDATE:
A cyclist was struck at the intersection of Suitland Parkway and Firth Sterling Avenue in Southeast. Drive with caution.

8:05 A.M. UPDATE:
The accident on the eastbound Dulles Toll Road near the ramp to the Beltway is still blocking the right center lane and right outside lane.

There are also still significant delays on the inner loop between the Springfield Interchange to Arlington Boulevard.

I-395 North is also pretty backed up approaching the 14th Street Bridge.

7:50 A.M. UPDATE:
An accident on I-95 North at the Springfield Interchange is blocking the right lane and shoulder, so expect big delays approaching the Beltway.

7:40 A.M. UPDATE:
The outer loop accident after New Hampshire Avenue has been cleared.

7:25 A.M. UPDATE:
The inner loop lane at Arlington Boulevard has reopened, but big delays remain on the stretch of the Beltway leading to that spot.

7:12 A.M. UPDATE:
An accident on the eastbound Dulles Toll Road near the ramp to the Beltway is blocking the right center lane and right outside lane. Expect delays.

7:10 A.M. UPDATE:
The southbound lane on I-270 South at I-370 has reopened, just one of the shoulders is blocked.

Also for Maryland commuters: An accident on the outer loop after New Hampshire Avenue is blocking both shoulders and could cause delays.

6:50 A.M. UPDATE:
The inner loop delays now stretch even further, snarling traffic closer to the Springfield Interchange.

6:40 A.M UPDATE:
An accident on I-270 South at I-370 is blocking one southbound lane and one of the shoulders.

6:30 A.M. UPDATE:
The accident on the inner loop is still blocking the left lane, and it is causing major backups. Traffic slows to a very slow crawl right after the Braddock Road exit and continues until after the lane closure. Expect big delays.

6:10 A.M. UPDATE:
An accident on the inner loop is blocking the left lane and shoulder at Arlington Boulevard.

The westbound lanes of the unit block of Constitution Avenue in Northeast are closed due to a fallen tree.

With yesterday's rain and high water in the rearview mirror, we can turn our attention to today's commute. It'll be chilly this morning, but dry.

Let us know if you still have problems caused by yesterday's weather (trees still down, pools of water blocking lanes, that kind of stuff). In the meantime, keep your eyes here throughout the morning for updates on any other headaches awaiting you during the morning rush.
