Area delays and snafus

Airports | Amtrak | Buses | Capital Weather Gang | D.C. snow emergency | Plowing plans | Rails | Snow removal | Live traffic

Another day, another blizzard. With looming snow and sleet, not to mention the piles of ice and snow remaining from this weekend, the roads are among the last places you want to be right now. That being said, here's a roundup of conditions on some selected roads and commuter routes out there -- this is by no means comprehensive, but just trying to give you an idea what it's like out there (cold, icy and slow).

THE DISTRICT
All lanes are blocked on Wisconsin Avenue at Western Avenue in Northwest due to a disabled vehicle. The Fort Lincoln Park ramp on New York Avenue in Northeast is also blocked by a disabled vehicle.

MARYLAND
Two of four lanes on I-95 South at Allentown Road are closed due to weather (along with one of the southbound shoulders). One of the four lanes are closed on I-270 South just before MD 189 due to a disabled vehicle. The status of traffic on I-270 South just before I-370 is uncertain due to an accident; it's the same situation on MD 295 South at MD 197.

VIRGINIA
The right lane of I-95 South at US 1/Richmond Highway is closed due to a disabled vehicle. A disabled vehicle on I-495 North at Gallows Road might cause delays, and I-395 North slow from top to bottom.

Please keep using the word SNAFU. It describes the region perfectly on any day.
