Traffic: I-83 reopened

Snow, sleet and rain on Christmas Eve made roads slick in parts of the Baltimore area where officials temporarily shut parts of I-83 Christmas morning in the city.

I-83 was reopened in the city before 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, police said, and traffic cameras showed light traffic.

The National Weather Service issued a dense fog advisory shortly before 9 a.m. Tuesday for Northern Baltimore, Carroll, Frederick Harford, Howard and Washington counties. The agency cautioned that until noon, visibility could be less than one-quarter mile in spots, and suggested that motorists use low-beam headlights and leave plenty of distance between vehicles.

Road closures due to accidents were reported for Route 198 westbound at I-95 in Prince George's County, where an off-ramp was closed due to a single-vehicle accident, according to highway officials.
