Good morning, commuters!We’ll be keeping an eye on the roads and rails this morning, reporting any delays or issues — and we will need your help. If you hear about any congestion, delays, problems or anything at all, tell us in the comments section below or by tweeting @drgridlock.

Make sure you drink lots of water today. It’s going to start out warm and only get warmer, with the humidity pushing the heat index up to the triple digits, according to the Capital Weather Gang.

An earlier accident on I-395 North at the 14th Street Bridge has been cleared and all lanes reopened. Watch for some lingering delays heading this way.
