Traffic and weather on the 8th, one 48 with Carlos Ramirez in the traffic center. Thanks so much Ian, the westbound side of I 66. Now, the initial report was that three separate accidents scenes did happen within the same stretch of road here, was found outside of 66 right by nutly street as of now I only see two of those accidents scenes. However, if you're headed westbound, watch out on the right hand side of the roadway, both in the new express lanes as well as on the far most right hand side of the roadway. You should have just a single left lane getting bypassed both of those with minimal delays, which means you will approach at speed. So just be a little extra careful there. If you're headed westbound on 66 near not least street, eastbound side of 66 near 29 in centerville left lane blocked with a work zone there. I 95 has been very quiet so far during this early, early morning, no issues headed towards the Springfield interchange. Three 95 is up to speed as well. In Maryland, branch avenue northbound headed through Clinton, looks like there's an accident scene right as you make your way past Coventry way a little bit of a delay there to swallow police direction unclear how many lanes might be affected there. In the district, you street sounds like it is still closed between 14th street and 15th streets for the police activity through that area against follow police direction, thankfully, plenty of work arounds through that area. It should be just fine. Third street tunnel looks good, so does the southeast Southwest freeway, no issues to report on D.C. two 95 so far. Now, if you're taking 50 between the beltway and outwards and apples, not going to see anything in your way throughout that stretch. And if you're headed across the bay bridge, you do have your standard traffic patterns, two lanes will take you to eastbound and three lanes will take you back westbound. Carlos Ramirez WTO traffic.
