Maryland and Virginia Lunchtime Updates: Bay Bridge Clear, I-95 Clogged

* Get Alerts | Weekend Tips | Live Map | Weather *

Maryland State Highway Administration officials say that nothing major is going on in Maryland right now. They said traffic was very heavy last night, indicating that a lot of people might have gotten out of town early. So far, so good. The same is true at the Bay Bridge -- lanes still open, nothing new.

In Virginia, I-95 Southbound remains slow. Residuals from this morning's accident, lunchtime traffic and people leaving work early is combining, said Corinne Geller, spokeswoman for Virginia State Police. The accident this morning near Triangle/Quantico was cleared before 11 a.m., but that still added delays when lunchtime was arriving.

Some things to be wary of in Virginia:
-- A disabled vehicle on I-95 Southbound at mile marker 161 (a flat tire); it's on the shoulder, but that never stops people from slowing down to see.
-- A disabled vehicle on I-95 Northbound south of exit 170-B (also on the shoulder).
-- A disabled vehicle at I-95 Southbound at Dale City exit (156).

(They've already cleared delays on I-66 westbound, east of Route 28/exit 53; I-495 Westbound at Telegraph; and I-66 westbound, east of Cedar Lane and 243. So if you hit delays in any of those areas, it might be residual from that.)
