A one-car spinout just west of Riverview this morning in the westbound lanes around 07:15 stalled traffic about 5 miles, all the way to the Route 203 exit. It was cleared in less than 30 minutes but the damage was done as soon as the spinout happened. It takes about 20 minutes after the wreck was cleared for the traffic to return to normal.

This should show why little problems up on this section of 270 becomes big issues almost instantly. The incidents don’t even have to happen on the Chain of Rocks Bridge for the morning commute to go to hell.
