Traffic: Southbound I-83 cleared of late rush hour accident

The morning rush hour was extended Wednesday due to late incidents on roadways around Baltimore.

There was a report of an accident on southbound I-83 in the city near St. Paul Street, but by 11 a.m., Maryland Department of Transportation cameras were showing traffic moving smoothly again.

Another late accident on I-97 south at Dorsey Road in Anne Arundel County was also somewhat cleared — it was off to the far right shoulder, though a merge lane was also reportedly still affected.

Earlier accidents at I-895 east at the Harbor Tunnel and on the beltway at the Baltimore Washington Parkway had also been cleared. In Harford County, a utility problem was reportedly still affecting all lanes of MD Route 155 — both east and west — at Route 763 in Havre de Grace.

There had been some morning bus diversions and delays Wednesday, according to the Maryland Transit Administration. Officials said the No. 20 bus from Dundalk to Security Square Mall bypassed Culver Street eastbound and Monastery Avenue westbound, staying on Edmondson Avenue to Hilton Street in both directions.

And the No. 23 bus serving U.S. Route 40 and Rolling Road bypassed Wildwood Parkway and use the Edmondson Village loop. Trains and buses ran on schedule, according to the MTA.
