14th Street NW Blocked
Because of a utility emergency, 14th Street NW is blocked between Euclid and Chapin Streets and is likely to remain closed into the evening. That will affect many commuters heading north from downtown Washington.
D.C. police and the District Department of Transportation have set up detours in the area, a block east of Meridian Hill Park, and it's likely to be very congested for the afternoon rush.
The alternative north-south routes include 13th Street NW, 15th Street NW (which is one-way northbound) or 16th Street NW. East-west traffic can use U Street NW, V Street NW (which is one-way westbound), W Street NW (which is one-way eastbound), Girard Street NW or Columbia Road NW.
