Thanks, John, not a whole lot going on in the area right now, so if you're going somewhere, where you should get there on time, the inner and outer loop of the beltway running well, no reports of any crashes anymore, no major delays.

Now, southbound on 95 near 32, there have been reports of a work crew along the right side to keep an eye out for that, but right now not causing any delay. Getting across the bay bridge looks good, too lazy, found three lanes westbound, no delay getting there. 50 and the BW Parkway both at speed inside the beltway trying to head toward New York avenue, which is at speed all the way to the third street tunnel or continuing on to D.C. two 95, no worries to the 11th street bridge, I two 95 also looks good, making your way from the beltway to the 11th street bridge, and no problems along the suitland Parkway between the beltway. And the Douglas bridge, the earlier wreck in Laurel on one 97 near Brock bridge road should be cleared on the Thomas Johnson bridge along route four, watch for a work crew that's supposed to be in place till 2 o'clock this afternoon, if they are there, traffic is going to be alternating across the bridge, but right now a little to no delay.
