'Terrible Traffic Tuesday' in DC region ushers in season of heavy congestion

It's the day after Labor Day -- and you know what that means -- it's 'Terrible Traffic Tuesday!'

The infamous day is known to be one of the worst days for commuting in the D.C. area.

Highways in the region traditionally experience heavier than usual congestion beginning the Tuesday after Labor Day -- the day most students and workers get back to their regular schedules.

In our area, traffic is typically at its worst during the morning and evening rush hours and regularly causes backups along the metro areas of Interstates 95, 495 66 and 270.

Transit commuters should expect trains and buses to be extra crowded and wait times to be longer.
