I-395 North remains clogged up at the 14th Street Bridge.

I-66 East is backed up at the Teddy Roosevelt Bridge and as you approach the Beltway.

There's a disabled vehicle on 1st Street and Rhode Island Avenue in Northwest Washington.

An accident on the outer loop of the Beltway at the exit for Annapolis Road could slow traffic in that spot.

The accident on I-270 South before Shady Grove Road has been cleared.

8:30 A.M. UPDATE:

An accident on I-270 South before Shady Grove Road is blocking one local lane and one of the shoulders.

I-66 East is backed up approaching the Beltway, while the inner loop of the Beltway is, as usual, slow at I-66.

I-395 North is still very snarled around the 14th Street Bridge.

There's an accident on Missouri Avenue and North Capitol Street, which could cause problems near that intersection.

K Street has reopened at North Capitol Street and the accident at that intersection has been cleared.

7:10 A.M. UPDATE:
