Early traffic incidents in Maryland

8:40 A.M. UPDATE: The two I-270 South lanes remain closed; the I-95 North local lane has reopened.

7:35 A.M. UPDATE: The two lanes on I-270 South and the northbound local lane on I-95 North all remain closed. New addition: I-270 North at Shady Grove Road is seeing the right shoulder closed due to an accident.

7:05 A.M. UPDATE: The two lanes on I-270 South remain closed. And an accident on I-95 North just north of MD 198 has closed a northbound local lane.

6:30 A.M. UPDATE: The disabled car on I-495/Inner Loop at Bradley Road has closed one lane. And another accident -- this one on I-270 South just south of MD 27 -- has closed two of three southbound lanes on I-270.

6:15 A.M. UPDATE: Another pair of incidents: I-495 Inner Loop just past Bradley Road (a disabled car in the road on one of the four traffic lanes), and a collision on MD 198 West at I-95 North. It's unclear just yet what's impacted out of the four traffic lanes and the on- and off-ramps.

UPDATE: The Outer Loop off-ramp has been reopened, so both off-ramps are now open again.

A pair of early morning traffic incidents in Maryland augur for what will probably be a rough trek for people hitting the roads today:

- An accident on I-495/the Outer Loop at Connecticut Avenue has closed 1 of 2 off-ramps lanes from the Outer Loop.

- And an accident on 301 South just before John Hanson Highway (in Prince George's County) has closed one of the southbound shoulders; not necessary the biggest problem, except that could slow traffic heading towards the District from parts east (Annapolis and what not).
