Clarksburg Road lanes blocked at I-270

8:30 A.M. Update:

One of Clarksburg Road’s eastbound lanes remains blocked between I-270 and MD 355 and the on/off ramps also remain closed there.

I-395 North remains snarled around the 14th Street Bridge.

Eastbound I-66 is pretty backed up at the Teddy Roosevelt Bridge.

7:55 A.M. Update:

The debris on the road has been cleared from the outer loop of the Beltway at the Baltimore Avenue exit.

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

7:35 A.M. Update:

The delays on the inner loop of the Beltway at Gallows Road have worsened, so expect headaches if you’re heading in that direction.

7:15 A.M. Update:

There’s debris in the road on the outer loop of the Beltway at the Baltimore Avenue exit.

6:55 A.M. Update:

The inner loop of the Beltway is pretty backed up around Gallows Road already.

There are some delays around I-395 North at King Street and I-66 East at Chain Bridge Road. Neither spot has particularly brutal delays yet, but these areas usually wind up being pretty snarled so it’s worth noting.

6:30 A.M. Update:

The I-270 North off-ramp and shoulder have reopened at Clarksburg Road. One of Clarksburg Road’s eastbound lanes is still blocked, as are the on/off ramps.

We’ll be keeping tabs on any headaches, issues or problems we hear about on the roads this morning. Make sure to tell us about anything you see out there — either in the comments below or via Twitter (@DrGridlock).

So far:

There are still issues in Clarksburg near I-270 and Clarksburg Road, stemming from the broken gas main that shut down multiple lanes on Monday.

Clarksburg Road is still partially blocked between I-270 and N. Frederick Road/MD 355 in Clarksburg, with one of the two eastbound lanes on Clarksburg Road blocked as well as the right on-ramp and off-ramps. The I-270 North right off-ramp at the Clarksburg Road exit is still blocked and one of I-270 North’s shoulders is also closed.

There are detours at southbound Old Hundred Road/MD 109 and at northbound Father Hurley Boulevard.
