I-66 ramp to Beltway blocked
-- A tractor trailer accident on I-66 East is blocking the left side of the ramp from I-66 to I-495 North. Expect delays for the already crowded traffic hub. (Traffic is already backed up on I-66 East leading to the Beltway, and this obviously won't help.)
-- The disabled vehicle is still on I-95/Outer Loop before Ritchie Marlboro Road.
8:40 A.M. UPDATE:
-- The debris on the road has been cleared from I-95/Outer Loop.
-- However, there is a disabled vehicle on I-95/Outer Loop before Ritchie Marlboro Road. So there might still be Outer Loop delays.
-- I-66 East is still congested heading to the Beltway, but it's decreased a bit.
-- I-495 North is congested leading to Gallows Road.
-- And the first half of I-395 North remains congested.
-- I-95 North remains slow heading towards the Springfield Interchange, so anybody taking that route onto I-395 North should expect delays.

-- A disabled vehicle is blocking the right shoulder of I-95 North in the reversible lane in Lorton.
-- Traffic is backed up on I-95 North approaching the Springfield Interchange.
-- Delays remain on I-395 North.
7:35 A.M. UPDATE:
-- I-395 North is still heavily congested from the Springfield Interchange to King Street.
-- There's also traffic on I-495 North heading towards Gallows Road. The disabled vehicle has been moved.

6:30 A.M. UPDATE:
-- A disabled vehicle is blocking the right shoulder of I-495 North at Braddock Road, so expect delays.
-- A disabled vehicle is also blocking the right shoulder of I-495 North shortly after the G.W. Parkway, so expect possible delays there as well.
-- An accident on I-95/Outer Loop to the south of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway is blocking one Outer Loop lane and one of the shoulders.
-- An accident on MD 295 South at Riverdale Road could slow southbound traffic.
The roads and rails are mostly quiet this morning. One possible hitch, still ongoing from yesterday:
