Good morning, commuters! We’re in for another day of lovely spring weather according to the Capital Weather Gang.

We’ll be rounding up any headaches, issues or problems we hear about on the roads this morning. Let us know anything you see out there — tell us in the comments below or via Twitter (@DrGridlock).

Remember, the lane closures on 17th Street between Constitution and Indepednence avenues should be lifed by now. They began Wednesday night and were scheduled to run through 4 a.m. Thursday morning.
