Morning commute watch
Here's your daily roundup of the snags, problems, difficulties, issues, dilemmas, quandaries, obstacles and worries facing commuters this morning.
9:25 A.M.: An accident at the Teddy Roosevelt Bridge, plus general congestion on I-66 East en route to the District, is going to delay anybody on that roadway right now.
9:10 A.M.: Another Metro delay -- this time, delays at the Mount Vernon Square station towards Huntington. There's some debris in the roadway on I-95/Inner Loop at the BW Parkway.
8:45 A.M.: Metro delays at the National Airport stop towards Largo and Mt. Vernon. There was an earlier train malfunction that has been resolved, but the delays continue. And delays on I-495 North stretch from the Clara Barton Parkway to I-66.
8:20 A.M.: An accident on US 50 West past Church Road in Prince George's County has closed one of the four westbound lanes (and one of the shoulders). I-395 North is still bad from Seminary Road back to the Beltway. The usual congestion on I-495 North at Arlington Boulevard is causing problems for a few miles. There's a disabled vehicle at the intersection of New York and South Dakota avenues in Northeast.
-- On I-395 North at Edsall Road, an accident has closed the right lane and right shoulder.
-- The 900 block of 20th Street in Northwest is closed bewteen H and Eye streets.
7:35 A.M.: A disabled car is blocking the left lane of the ramp from Route 7 East to I-495 South. This area's commuters are facing delays in the same area that was closed due to the hit and run yesterday morning.
-- Horrid congestion on I-95 North this morning -- backed up from the Springfield Interchange down to Woodbridge. The thing is a parking lot for much of that 10-mile stretch, traffic cameras show.
-- On I-395 North, residual traffic from this morning's accident -- and the usual congestion on that roadway -- is very packed close to the Springfield Interchange. Once you pass Seminary Road, it lightens up somewhat, but it's packed again at the 14th Street Bridge.
-- No Metro delays at this time.
6:40 A.M.: For MARC travelers, Brunswick Line train 874 left Brunswick station about 20 minutes late due to signal problems. It was scheduled to leave that station at 5:25 a.m. and arrive at Union Station at 7:28 a.m., so if you're picking it up along that route be advised.
6:35 A.M.: While an earlier train malfunction at Braddock Road has been resolved, there are still delays in both directions on the Blue and Yellow lines. On I-395 North at Seminary Road, the left lane and left shoulder remain closed.
6:10 A.M.: Metro delays lifted, all trains running on time. The earlier accident on I-395 North shortly before Seminary Road has closed the left lane and center lane (plus the left shoulder).
-- Delays on the Yellow and Blue lines. On the Blue Line, unscheduled track maintenance at the Van Dorn Street station is causing single tracking between Van Dorn Street and Pentagon City. Delays in both directions. On the Yellow Line, unscheduled track maintenance at Pentagon City is causing single tracking between Huntington and Pentagon City. Again, delays heading both ways.
-- An accident on I-395 North at Seminary Road has closed the left lane and left shoulder.
