WASHINGTON — What could have been an hours-long traffic headache for drivers on D.C. 295 was cleared within an hour Wednesday morning.
A broken-down tractor trailer was reported around 6:30 a.m. At first, it was expected to block the right lane on southbound D.C. 295 past Eastern Avenue for several hours.
But the speedy work of the Department of Public Works and a Maryland Police Department crane had the trailer removed to a side street shortly before 7:30 a.m.
Drivers should expect residual delays.
