Ice, Accidents Make for Slow Morning Commute

Icy roads have created hazardous driving conditions across the region.

Traffic on I-270 is particularly slow after a ten-car pileup on the southbound lanes of I-270 closed a ramp from the highway onto the Capitol Beltway. Read the full report here.

Check the live traffic page to see an update of the roads on your commute.

This entire week has been especially bad for commuters. K Street looks like a parking lot. Last night Pennsylvania Avenue was blocked off between the White House and the Capitol at rush hour; traffic was rerouted to Constitution or Mass Ave. This is two weeks before Jan. 20. What's going on? BTW, on Jan. 20 I plan to stay home, doors locked, curtains drawn, TV and radio off. I'm sick of this dog and pony show already.

K Street is a mess because H Street is closed along the same area where Clinton shut down Pennsylvania Avenue. The reason is that the Obamas are staying at the Hay-Adams. Nice job by the government to take away E Street, Pennsylvania Avenue, AND H Street, all major crosstown routes.
