LIVE TRAFFIC BLOG: I-95 crash and other incidents

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Two southbound lanes of I-95 before Route 17 have reopened in Stafford where a passenger bus overturned.

Virginia State Police say the crash involves a commercial passenger bus with 54 people on board. We're told at least four people suffered serious injuries and have been transported to a nearby hospital.

On I-495 north before Route 50, two lanes are blocked due to a jackknifed tractor trailer.

Metrobus will transition from severe snow plan to moderate snow service plan starting at 11 a.m. Most Metrobus routes will have service with snow detours in effect to keep buses off of hilly terrain, narrow side streets and other problem areas.

Metrorail opened at 5 a.m. Monday, running a normal weekday schedule.

MetroAccess paratransit service is suspended Monday.

VRE is running an "S" Schedule. Only trains marked with an "S" above its train number on the published schedule will operate.

MARC will operate on an S schedule on the Penn, Camden and Brunswick Lines. This means that only trains designated with an S at the top of the column will operate.

TheBus will be operating on limited service, say Prince George's County officials. Passengers should expect delays.

Ride On bus service will run its regular weekday service. Officials say riders should expect some delays and detours. Check or call 3-1-1 for more information.

Charles County, Md. officials say VanGO services will start at 10 a.m. on Monday. Significant delays are expected until all roads are cleared.

DASH began service at 8 a.m., according to City of Alexandria officials.
