I-70 crash, disabled train disrupt morning commute

February 09, 2011

People commuting to the Baltimore area by car or to Washington, D.C., by train might have run into travel difficulties Wednesday morning.

Interstate 70 was closed in both directions for more than an hour following a three-vehicle accident east of Md. 97 in Howard County, the Maryland Department of Transportation reported.

The accident was reported shortly before 8:30 a.m., according to MDOT. By 9:45 a.m., all but one eastbound shoulder of I-70 had reopened.

MARC rail service from Frederick, Md., to Washington was canceled Wednesday morning because a disabled freight train was blocking the tracks, according to the Maryland Transit Administration.

Trains 890 892 and 894 were not running Wednesday. Service is expected to be restored this afternoon, MTA said on its website.
