UPDATED: Major Road Closures

Police have temporarily shut down all lanes of I-395 South between Hayes Street and Arlington Ridge Road due to snowy conditions. Meanwhile, I-66 has reopened at Spout Run after an earlier accident.

Update @ 2:16 PM – Traffic cameras show snow plows working to clear portions of I-395 South. Police are reopening lanes, but may take some time for the backlog to clear out. Traffic is currently backed up on I-395 South past the Pentagon.

Cameras also show very heavy westbound traffic on the Arlington portion of I-66. In addition, there are reports of slow traffic on the northbound lanes of the George Washington Parkway.

If you must drive today, drive slowly and carefully, especially around curves and pedestrians. Arlington County Police are currently handling a very high volume of accident calls. Be safe out there!
