I-95 South reopened in Virginia, I-95 North slow

8:30 A.M. Update:

I-95 North is pretty congested around Lorton right now. Southbound I-95, which was backed up in the same area due to an accident and lane closures earlier this morning, doesn’t have any big delays.

An accident on the inner loop of the Beltway at Indian Head Highway is blocking one of the shoulders.

8 A.M. Update:

The accident on southbond I-95 in Occoquan has been cleared and all the lanes reopened. Traffic is moving smoothly again in this area, though you can expect some minor congestion.

7:40 A.M. Update:

The right lane and right shoulder remain blocked on I-95 South in Occoquan. There are delays on northbound I-95 approaching this spot, likely due to rubber-necking, so expect congestion in both directions around this area.

I-395 North is backed up at the 14th Street Bridge.

7:15 A.M. Update:

Now only the right lane and right shoulder are blocked on I-95 South before Occoquan. Traffic had only been getting by in the left lane and on the left shoulder earlier this morning due to an accident involving a tractor trailer. Southbound traffic is still moving slowly from Lorton to Occoquan.

The disabled vehicle on the inner loop at Braddock Road has been cleared.

6:55 A.M. Update:

The accident on the outer loop at Leesburg Pike has been cleared and the lanes reopened.

There’s a disabled vehicle on the inner loop at Braddock Road, blocking the right shoulder.

6:35 A.M. Update:

The accident on the outer loop at Leesburg Pike is now blocking the right center lane, right lane and right shoulder. Expect delays.

6:20 A.M. Update:

The accident on the outer loop of the Beltway at the Leesburg Pike is blocking the right lane and right shoulder.

The left center lane has reopened on I-95 South in Occoquan. The right center lane, right lane and right shoulder remain closed.
