Original Post:

We’ll be keeping tabs on any headaches, issues or problems we hear about on the roads this morning. Make sure to tell us about anything you see out there — either in the comments below or via Twitter (@DrGridlock).

So far:

I-95 North is already very backed up approaching the Fairfax County Parkway.

A disabled vehicle on the inner loop of the Beltway is blocking the right shoulder at Braddock Road.

The temporary closing of Branch Avenue on either side of Pennsylvania Avenue in Southeast Washington was scheduled to end by 5 a.m. this morning. If you’ve been using one of the detours during the road work, you can head back to your normal route.
