Gridiron Gridlock

It's getting pretty bad out there for anyone heading to the Redskins game, or for people just trying to take the Beltway home.

Heavy delays are already reported on the Beltway traveling from Virginia to Maryland on the outer loop. The delays begin before Van Dorn Street.

On the Outer Loop, traveling across the American Legion bridge to Bethesda, Silver Spring, College Park and Landover, the traffic is heavy and especially slow as you approach the exits for FedEx Field.

Metro says it is running normally on the Blue and Orange lines, with ridership at 4:30 p.m. at about 421,000, before the rush-hour crunch really begins.

There are also a bunch of people stuck on the George Washington Parkway, where a lane has been closed all day because of a truck accident this morning.
