Main D.C. area roads clear but may be icy

Expect to encounter icy spots Monday morning. Slush may have refrozen overnight. Give yourself more time for the commute.

The Virginia Department of Transportation says its crews have cleared highway shoulders and turn lanes on major routes and plowed and sanded subdivision streets. Commuter lots along I-95 and I-66 are clear and treated with sand.

The I-95/395 HOV lanes and the eastbound I-66 shoulder lane between the Capital Beltway and Route 50 have been plowed and treated. Almost 300 trucks are working on neighborhood streets and problem spots.

Virginia's 511 information system reported at 7:12 a.m. that there was a multi-Vehicle accident northbound on I-95 at mile marker 159 in Prince William, but that was quickly cleared. I-395N is reported slow.

In the District, crews continue to plow and treat roadways, but since they remain wet, they may have turned icy overnight.

Maryland's traffic speed data for main roads shows traffic generally is flowing well on interstates and other highways.

On MARC's Camden Line: There's a switch problem between Riverdale station and Washington. Trains are delayed in both directions.

Metrobuses and MetroAccess have returned to normal operations. Metrorail also is operating normally.
