A few glitches in post-holiday traffic

By Martin Weil

Update, 7:45 p.m.:

Officials say the Great Return Home after the long Thanksgiving weekend seems to be going pretty well, all things considered.

But there is a complication for some: About 7:30 p.m. Sunday, the southbound lanes of Interstate 95 were closed at Powder Mill Road (Route 212) in the Beltsville area
after a traffic accident. It was not immediately clear when the lanes would reopen.

Otherwise, Maryland State Police reported an hour earlier that traffic was flowing freely and without significant problems. One car had broken down on the inner loop near the Greenbelt Metro station, but any delays there appeared minor.

Interstate 95 south of DC is broken. I've lived and worked all over the country including Southern California and no highway in the nation is more dysfunctional.

What about the Delaware Toll Plaza? How long were the traffic jams on Wednesday/Thursday and Sunday?
