I-495 North lane closure til noon
Here's a roundup of the traffic and commuting problems facing folks this morning...
9:25 A.M. UPDATE:
-- Major delays on I-395 North stemming from the 14th Street Bridge (as usual).
-- Construction on I-495 North between the Dulles Toll Road and Chain Bridge Road is going to close the right lane from 9:30 a.m. until noon, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.
9:05 A.M. UPDATE:
-- Just reminding you at the top of the hour: the Pentagon Metro station and Pentagon Transit Center remain closed.
8:50 A.M. UPDATE:
-- Traffic is still solid on I-66 East before the Beltway, starting after Nutley Street.
8:30 A.M. UPDATE:
-- A vehicle fire on I-66 East just before Lee Highway has closed the right shoulder, so be aware if you're heading in that direction.
8:15 A.M. UPDATE:
-- The incidents on the Beltway in Maryland have been lifted.
-- Congestion on I-395 North stems from Duke Street back to the Springfield Interchange.
-- Traffic on I-66 West still very congested and packed in the Rosslyn/Courthouse area.
-- There's a disabled car on I-66 West at the Beltway; while it's only blocking the shoulder, it's still going to cause more delays.
-- There's also a disabled vehicle on I-495 North near Chain Bridge Road; it's also only closing the right shoulder, but delays are inevitable.
-- Traffic is getting heavy on I-495 North after Gallows Road.
7:50 A.M. UPDATE:
-- An accident on I-495/Inner Loop at Colesville Road is going to cause problems and delays for inner loop traffic.
-- A disabled car on I-95/Outer Loop at U.S. 1 (in Prince George's County) is going to cause delays for outer loop traffic there.
7:35 A.M. UPDATE:
-- The earlier tractor trailer accident is now just closing the southbound right and left lanes.
-- I-66 West is congested in the area of Rosslyn and Courthouse, so anyone taking it from the District or the Arlington area should expect delays or try to avoid it.
7:15 A.M. UPDATE:
-- There's a disabled car on US 50 West before Church Road in Prince George's County. While it's on the shoulder, still be prepared of potential delays.
-- A disabled car on I-66 East after Nutley Street has closed the right shoulder, and delays are stemming back from that point.
-- Lanes remain closed on West Ox Road and I-395 North.
6:50 A.M. UPDATE:
-- An accident on I-395 North shortly before Seminary Road is causing congestion there and back to Little River Turnpike/Duke Street. The left lane and left shoulder are closed just before Seminary.
-- West Ox Road remains closed in both directions at the ramps to Lee Highway.
6:25 A.M. UPDATE:
-- The one-car collision on Largo Road has been moved to one of the southbound shoulders, so it's no longer blocking the ramp to MD 295.
-- A tractor trailer accident on West Ox Road/Route 608 Southbound near the ramp to Lee Highway has closed the left and right lanes of both directions, north and south. Avoid this route if at all possible.
-- Traffic is backed up on I-66 East at Chain Bridge Road.
-- MARC riders, Brunswick Line train 872 is arriving about 15 minutes late to Metro Grove station due to mechanical issues.
-- Any commuters who pass through the Pentagon station, or head there directly, or head to the Pentagon City station -- they'll have delays in the aftermath of yesterday's shooting.
-- A one-vehicle accident earlier this morning on Largo Road/MD 202 is blocking the southbound right ramp to MD 295 South.
-- Emergency roadwork continues to close MD 725/Marlboro Pike in both directions at the railroad crossing in Upper Marlboro. (Just west of MD 202/Largo Road, between that road and Blue Star Memorial Highway.) For an alternate route, Pennsylvania Avenue to the south is your best bet.
