8:50 A.M. UPDATE:

Dr. Gridlock reports that there is light traffic on the Intercounty Connector this morning. This is the first morning rush with tolling on the roadway, and the good doctor sees no bottlenecks at any of the entrances and exits.

A disabled vehicle on I-395 South just south of the 14th Street Bridge is blocking both shoulders and the left lane.

I-395 North is still pretty sluggish at the 14th Street Bridge and around King Street.

The accident on the outer loop of the Beltway at U.S. 1/Jefferson Davis Highway has been cleared and the ramp reopened.

There's an accident in the northbound 3rd Street Tunnel near the exit for Massachusetts Avenue, so expect some issues around that spot.

8:35 A.M. UPDATE:

An accident on the outer loop of the Beltway at U.S. 1/Jefferson Davis Highway is blocking the southbound exit ramp.

There's an accident on northbound I-295 at Pennsylvania Avenue in Southeast Washington, and it is going to impact traffic. Avoid the area or expect delays.

8:22 A.M. UPDATE:

The inner loop accident before the B.W. Parkway has been cleared up.

8:10 A.M. UPDATE:

An accident on the inner loop of the Beltway before the B.W. Parkway could slow traffic in that spot.

I-395 North is still snarled at multiple spots, particularly approaching the 14th Street Bridge.

7:55 A.M. UPDATE:

The accident on the outer loop of the Beltway at Arlington Boulevard/U.S. 50 has been cleared.

An accident on I-395 South just south of the 14th Street Bridge is blocking both shoulders and the left lane.

7:30 A.M. UPDATE:

The accident on the outer loop of the Beltway at Arlington Boulevard/U.S. 50 is still blocking the south exit ramp.

The inner loop of the Beltway is pretty snarled around Telegraph Road right now.

I-395 North is a congested mess at multiple spots between the Springfield Interchange and the 14th Street Bridge. If you're taking that road, expect to hit some snags.

7:15 A.M. UPDATE:

One lane has reopened in each direction on 16th Street between M and O streets in Northwest.

The accident on I-270 South near Hyattstown has been cleared up.

6:55 A.M. UPDATE:

The delays on I-395 North keep inching further up the roadway, with delays now stretching back from Seminary Road.

There's an accident on I-270 South between Old Hundred and Clarksburg roads.

6:35 A.M. UPDATE:

I-395 North is now pretty slow from Duke Street back to the Springfield Interchange.

An accident on the outer loop of the Beltway at Arlington Boulevard/U.S. 50 is blocking the south exit ramp.

6:15 A.M. UPDATE:

The disabled vehicle has been cleared from the outer loop of the Beltway at Braddock Road.

An accident on I-395 North at Edsall Road is causing some backups that snake back to the Springfield Interchange.

ORIGINAL POST:

Good morning, commuters. After yesterday's "deluge," to quote the Capital Weather Gang, there could be plenty of slick spots on the roads this morning. Be careful when you head out, because you never know where it might be slippery or where standing water might be waiting. We'll be updating this blog all morning with the headaches and issues awaiting you on the roads and rails. Let us know what you see, in the comments below or via Twitter (@DrGridlock).

16th Street is closed in both directions between M and O streets in Northwest Washington due to high standing water in the underpass at Scott Circle.

Ridge Road is blocked in both directions at Brink Road due to an accident just east of I-270 in Germantown.

A disabled vehicle on the outer loop of the Beltway at Braddock Road is blocking the left shoulder.
