Overturned Truck Snarls Traffic on Outer Loop

An afternoon accident on the Capital Beltway's outer loop between Connecticut and Georgia avenues closed the two left lanes, causing disruptions, according to MapTuit traffic reports.

The two left lanes are now reopened.

Definitely avoid this area if possible. Overturned truck (has been uprighted), but a huge concrete block too in the left lane. Thats going to be there causing regular delays and rubbernecking delays till after rush hour. I passed by maybe 2 or 3 mins after it happened (on the inner loop). Not a pretty sight!

There was also a car that was crushed on the passenger side.

I drove past Nationals Park tonight on S. Capital St. going north on my ususal route home and was shocked to see that the third traffic lane in front of the stadium was taken up by a huge satellite truck, Comcast SUVs and other vehicles. Tell me that this isn't going to be a feature of every home game. It's bad enough that the traffic coordinators insist on standing in the crosswalks, impeding the traffic flow, but to lose a taffic lane for TV is too much.
