Heavy Traffic Reported as Rain Slows Down Post-Holiday Commute

Morning commute on 12/1/15

The Tuesday after Thanksgiving (and first day of December) is proving to be a turkey in terms of traffic.

Steady rain and accidents have helped to slow the commute to a crawl across much of Arlington.

On I-395 at 9 a.m., nearly the entire length of inbound I-395 was slow. I-66 is reported to be backed up all the way to Falls church. And the GW Parkway is a slog starting at the first overlook.

A reader reports that Route 50 was no picnic, either.

Elsewhere, minor flooding was reported in the area of Chain Bridge. Expect the rain to continue throughout the morning, forecasters say.
