Virginia Roads Update: Rush hour congestion intensifying on Beltway

The Beltway is getting congested at the height of rush hour as commuters get home and others head out of town for the long weekend.
Updates from around Northern Virginia...

-- An accident in the city of Alexandria has closed the south right shoulder of I-395. Traffic is backed up about two miles.

-- Congestion is causing even heavier backups heading northbound on I-395. VDOT advises that congestion is behind a four-mile traffic backup in Fairfax. There's a two-mile backup at the 14th St. bridge from congestion.

-- I-495 in Fairfax County, both north- and southbound, is backed up between six to eight miles because of heavy traffic.

--I-66 delays continue from earlier.

For updates on road conditions, see Virginia's DOT web page.
