Original post: Good morning, Washington. The main news at this hour is the closing of Maryland Route 410 at U.S. 50. Trafficland is reporting an accident involving a tractor-trailer, with a fuel spill. I drove by this earlier this morning, and emergency vehicles were everywhere. You'll need to seek alternate routes around this area. You can exit at Route 202 and take Route 450 to your destination.
Other areas to watch for: a disabled vehicle on I-495 northbound before Gallows Road, with the right lane blocked; and a tree is reportedly blocking the ramp to the outer loop on the GW Parkway northbound before I-495.
Metro is not reporting any bus or rail delays.
Stay alert and be careful out there.
