U.S. Route 50 eastbound is closed in Annapolis up after a person was struck and killed by a vehicle.
Outbound New York Avenue NE remains closed at Montana Avenue NE Thursday morning as crews work to repair a water main that broke early Wednesday.
District Department of Transportation Officials say that eastbound vehicles will be detoured around the work area in the 1600 block of New York Avenue NE via the traffic circle at Montana Avenue. Suggested alternate routes are Rhode Island Avenue and Bladensburg Road. Depending on where you start your journey, DC 295 is also an option.
Fire spokesman Peringer tweets that the bulk of the fire has been knocked down; there are no injuries; and train service has resumed at slower-than-normal speeds. Update 5:50p.m.: A tire fire has filled parts of the city with dark smoke and shut down a segment of U.S. Route 50 corridor in northeast DC, and DC emergency officials have asked Amtrak, whose trains run alongside New York Ave., to suspend service.
All northbound lanes of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway are closed between Greenbelt Road and Powder Mill Road in Prince George's County after a major police chase just before 3p.m. this afternoon, potentially causing complications for those returning from holiday getaways. A person attempting to elude police in an allegedly stolen truck hit multiple vehicles on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway before the truck overturned just south of Powder Mill Road in Laurel., and the driver--who was also accused of assault--fled on foot.
The arrival of Memorial Day Weekend means the arrival of traffic, traffic and more traffic.
