Georgia Ave. reopens

By Washington Post Editors

[This post has been updated]

7 p.m. Update: Traffic appears to be flowing freely now on Georgia Avenue.

5:25 p.m. Update: Delays continue with back-ups as far south as Plyers Mill Road. Utility crews are still on the scene.

5 p.m. Update: Traffic cameras show that Georgia Avenue northbound has partially reopened, but utility crews are on the scene and delays remain heavy, with the far right lanes blocked.

Original post: Montgomery County reports that all lanes of Georgia Avenue northbound are closed at Randolph Road due to downed wires.

Traffic cameras show police on the scene and a significant back-up.

With the evening commuter in full swing, the closure will have significant impacts across routes that head north from the District into Montgomery County. Alternates include diverting to Veirs Mill Road from Georgia, Connecticut Avenue and University Boulevard.

Delays extend to Veirs Mill Road.
