Virginia State Police
Since 3 p.m. traffic crashes have been rapidly multiplying due to icy conditions throughout Northern Virginia. The ramp from I-395 to the I-495 southbound is closed due to as many as 15 reported wrecks. Motorists are being advised to avoid the Mixing Bowl, as it is iced over, and find an alternate route. Virginia State Police are also responding to numerous crashes up and down I-66.\
Motorists are being asked to stagger their evening commute times or find alternate routes so as to lessen congestion and back ups. Those stuck in traffic are asked to be patient and to avoid blocking emergency lanes. These lanes are critical for emergency vehicles, tow trucks, VDOT vehicles, etc., to access crash scenes.
