Traffic Alert: Major Delays on I-270 South After Accident

Updated, 9:45 a.m.: An earlier accident on the American Legion Bridge has been cleared, but it has caused a major backup on I-270 South onto the Outer Loop. Slow traffic extends from Montgomery Village Ave. to the American Legion Bridge. The accident is also backing up traffic on the Outer Loop from Connecticut Ave. to the American Legion Bridge.

The two left lanes are blocked on the Outer Loop of the Beltway at the American Legion Bridge by large steel beams that have spilled off a truck. Traffic is backed up to the River Rd. exit.
