All right, Shayna, we're doing pretty well if you're out and about for this Memorial Day holiday. It is a federal holiday. We've had a very light rush hour and things are currently continuing into the midday knock on wood.

We've been reporting the elderly ramp at 50, as well as the disabled vehicle on the outer loop over top of the big curve and the two 70 sphere, everything on the beltway is cleared, and the beltway remains at speed, both in Maryland and in Virginia. We'll check in Maryland, we've been watching any volume on 50 coming back from your eastern shore points, four O four traffic lights, Y mills, you may get congestion, but no incidents reported all the way to the beltway, one note if you are 50 west crossing the Chesapeake Bay bridge, your advice to follow your overhead lane signals, there was an object reported on the bridge span, so they're going to go and pick it up.
