Stormy A.M. commute

8:30 A.M. Update:

There’s a disabled vehicle on the Douglass Bridge, but the direction is uncertain. If you’re approaching the bridge from either direction, expect some issues.

The inner loop of the Beltway is snarled around I-66.

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

The accident on I-95 North in Woodbridge has been cleared and the lanes reopened, but delays should persist.

8:05 A.M. Update:

The problems on I-95 North in Woodbridge are going to get worse: An accident is blocking the right lane and right shoulder.

An accident on 13th Street and Good Hope Road in Southeast Washington, right near the 11th Street Bridge, could cause some headaches there.

There’s an accident at Alabama and Martin Luther King avenues in Southeast Washington. It involves a Metrobus, according to the District Department of Transportation.

7:40 A.M. Update:

There are still pretty bad delays on I-66 East at Chain Bridge Road. There are also backups on I-95 North in Woodbridge and I-395 North around Duke Street.

Original Post:

Good morning, commuters. Today is the first official day of spring, so we’ll see temperatures in the 60s and some rain showers during the day.

We’ll be keeping tabs on the headaches and problems throughout the morning commute, so make sure you check back in during the morning rush. And let us know what you see out there, either in the comments section below or via Twitter.
