Delays on I-66 East, I-95 North in VA

8:30 A.M. Update:

The Douglass Bridge in Southeast Washington is exceedingly slow and crowded right now. If you can head a bit east, the Sousa Bridge (Pennsylvania Avenue) is a much easier drive.

The Beltway is pretty slow in both directions between the George Washington and Clara Barton parkways.

Traffic remains snarled on eastbound I-66 (approaching Chain Bridge Road) and northbound I-95 (approaching the Beltway as well as in Woodbridge).

8:05 A.M. Update:

I-95 North is backed up approaching the Springfield Interchange, so expect headaches there.

A disabled vehicle on the outer loop of the Beltway is blocking the right shoulder at Arlington Boulevard.

7:50 A.M. Update:

The accident on eastbound U.S. 50 before Collington Road has been cleared and all lanes reopened.

7:30 A.M. Update:

An accident on eastbound U.S. 50 before Collington Road is blocking one of the lanes and one of the shoulders.

7:20 A.M. Update:

An accident on eastbound U.S. 50 before Church Road is blocking one of the shoulders.

There’s a disabled vehicle on the inner loop of the Beltway at Braddock Road. It’s blocking one of the shoulders.

7 A.M. Update:

The standard morning delays on I-66 East approaching Chain Bridge Road have cropped up, slowing traffic along that route.

6:40 A.M. Update:

I-95 North is pretty backed up at the Franconia Springfield Parkway and around Woodbridge.

There is some congestion on the inner loop of the Beltway before Braddock Road.

6:10 A.M. Update:

The outer loop lanes have reopened at Bradley Boulevard.

Good morning, commuters. We’ll be keeping an eye on the roads and rails this morning, reporting any delays or issues. 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.

So far:

An accident on the outer loop of the Beltway is blocking two lanes at Bradley Boulevard.
