Inner Loop very slow in VA

By Mark Berman

8:40 A.M. UPDATE:

There's a disabled vehicle blocking one lane on the inner loop of the Beltway between Braddock Road and the Springfield Interchange.

I-66 East is still a mess at the Beltway, and the inner loop of the Beltway is also pretty slow approaching I-66.

The right lane and right shoulder on the inner loop remain blocked at Darcy Road.

The I-95 North problems around the Fairfax County Parkway have cleared up.

8:15 A.M. UPDATE:

The inner loop of the Beltway is now pretty slow approaching I-66.

I-66 East is also very congested as you approach the Beltway.

I-95 North remains sluggish around the Fairfax County Parkway.

One lane of the inner loop remains blocked at Darcy Road due to the accident late last night.

7:50 A.M. UPDATE:

I-95 North is now slow around the Fairfax County Parkway.

I-395 North is also pretty slow at the 14th Street Bridge and just north of the Springfield Interchange.

7:40 A.M. UPDATE:

The congestion on I-95 North before the Springfield Interchange has cleared up.

The inner loop of the Beltway is still pretty slow near Arlington Boulevard. There's also some congestion near Alexandria, so expect mild delays in that area.

7:25 A.M. UPDATE:

Another lane has reopened on the inner loop of the Beltway at Darcy Road

7:10 A.M. UPDATE:

The accident on the inner loop at the Dulles Toll Road has been cleared and the lanes reopened.

The inner loop is very slow at Arlington Boulevard.

I-95 North is also pretty jammed up at the Springfield Interchange, though things have cleared up to the south in Woodbridge.

6:40 A.M. UPDATE:

An accident on the inner loop of the Beltway is blocking the left lane at the Dulles Toll Road.
