Delays on I-395 N and I-66 E

By Mark Berman

8:45 A.M. UPDATE:

The usual problems persist in Virginia: I-395 North is backed up at the 14th Street Bridge, while I-66 East is backed up at the Beltway.

In Maryland, the accident on the inner loop at Cherry Hill Road has been cleared. The accident north of U.S. 1/Baltimore Avenue is still blocking the shoulder. And southbound Carroll Avenue/MD 185 is still blocked at Jefferson Avenue in Takoma Park due to a utility problem.

In the District, the accident on the 11th Street Bridge has been cleared, according to the District Department of Transportation. An accident on New York and Florida avenues in Northeast might cause some problems though, so expect delays there.

8:20 A.M. UPDATE:

There are accidents in Maryland on the inner loop (at Cherry Hill Road) and outer loop (north of U.S.1/Baltimore Avenue). Both are only blocking shoulders, but you should be advised in case there are delays.

In the District, the disabled vehicle on northbound I-295 at S. Capitol Street, the accident on the inbound Douglass Bridge and the accident on the Whitney Young Bridge by RFK Stadium have all been cleared.

But an accident on the 11th Street Bridge is blocking the second lane from the left, according to the District Department of Transportation. Stay to the very left or right.

8 A.M. UPDATE:

All outer loop lanes have reopened before Connecticut Avenue.

7:50 A.M. UPDATE:

The right two outer loop lanes are now blocked before Connecticut Avenue.

7:40 A.M. UPDATE:

An accident on the outer loop before Connecticut Avenue is blocking one lane and one of the shoulders.

There's also an accident on northbound I-295 at the Suitland Parkway in Southeast Washington. Expect delays there.

7:20 A.M. UPDATE:

The inner loop is pretty backed up approaching Arlington Boulevard. A little to the west, I-66 East is slow approaching Chain Bridge Road.

In Maryland, southbound Carroll Avenue/MD 185 is still blocked at Jefferson Avenue in Takoma Park due to a utility problem.

In the District, a disabled vehicle on northbound I-295 at S. Capitol Street could delay traffic there. There's also an accident on the inbound Douglass Bridge, so expect problems there as well. And there's an accident on the Whitney Young Bridge by RFK Stadium, so that might also be congested right now.

6:50 A.M. UPDATE:

As predicted, the backups are getting worse on I-395 North approaching Duke Street. Expect delays heading in that direction.

6:25 A.M. UPDATE:

I-395 North is starting to see congestion approaching Duke Street. As is usually the case in the morning, it's going to get worse before it gets better, so that's something for commuters to remember.

6 A.M. UPDATE:

The disabled vehicle on I-95 South has been cleared.

ORIGINAL POST:

Good morning, commuters. We're at the midweek of our first work week with everyone back from the holiday, and it's getting colder out there. Check back here throughout the morning for updates on headaches awaiting you on the morning commute.

There's a disabled vehicle on I-95 South at exit 167, blocking the right shoulder and potentially causing delays.

In Maryland, southbound Carroll Avenue/MD 185 is blocked at Jefferson Avenue in Takoma Park due to a utility problem.
