There are major traffic delays leading up to Interstates 495 and 395 in Alexandria, as a trucker convoy protesting COVID-19 mandates has entered D.C. and created miles of backups.
Traffic snaked all the way down to Jefferson Manor, just south of Huntington, which is about a half-mile from the interstate.
The convoy drove through the area last week without incident.
Heads Up, Friends! There's expected to be increased commercial and passenger vehicle traffic on the Beltway (I-495) and I-395 today.
