Traffic: Disabled vehicle on U.S. 50 West

A disabled vehicle on U.S. 50 West in Arnold past the MD 2 (Governor Ritchie Highway) exit has closed the westbound right traffic lane and westbound right shoulder at 8:42 a.m. on Friday, according to the state Department of Transportation.

DOT also said that Thursday emergency roadwork on MD 139 North in Baltimore City at Gittings Avenue is continuing on Friday morning, closing the northbound right traffic lane and northbound right shoulder.

Other incidents that occurred earlier in the week are also hampering the morning commute.

The Baltimore City Department of Public Works said that Wednesday water main repairs on eastbound North Avenue at Greenmount Avenue continue to close eastbound lanes on Friday morning.

And the Maryland Transportation Authority said that two toll plaza lanes on the southbound Fort McHenry Tunnel in Baltimore City remain closed three weeks after a two-vehicle collision. Southbound lanes 18-19 are shut down due to the July 15 accident, DOT said.

MdTA spokeswoman Tamory Winfield said that the lanes are closed due to a two-vehicle incident involving a truck that lost its attenuator at the location. She said that the contractor making repairs "now has the parts in and anticipates installation next week."

The Maryland Transit Administration reported minor MARC train delays at 8:55 a.m.
