Lots of Cars, Not Too Many Delays

At 5:30 p.m., there are lots of people out there but not too many killer backups. The worst of then are where they've been all day: on I-95 where the regular lanes and HOV lanes merge and on I-66 in the western part of the region. Many other spots look about like they do on a regular day and some actually look better. There's no backup whatsoever at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and there hasn't been one for a couple hours.

Amazingly, there have been no accidents to cause major delays, even as a pretty heavy rain storm has moved through the region. Let's hope it stays that way.

And here's hoping you get where you want to go and have a good time once you do ...

Actually, I found traffic horrible coming back from the Virginia Beach/Williamsburg area. I-64 West had a lot of pockets of stop and go traffic, so we ended up bailing some on that. Then we heard that I-95 had lots of traffic problems and there was a reported 5 and 6 mile backup to the Nice bridge on 301, eliminating that option. We ended up taking Route 1 for part of the way, but we ended up leaving Busch Gardens a little before 4:00 and got to Rockville at 9:00, stopping for dinner for about 20-30 minutes or so.
