Nearly 2,000 motorcycles are scheduled to roar through Western Maryland and Northern Virginia today for the 9/11 Ride, an event to honor those who died and risked their lives on Sept. 11.
Drivers can expect gridlock this morning in Western Maryland, as police use rolling roadblocks to escort motorcycles coming from Shanksville, Penn.
The same thing will happen in Northern Virginia, as drivers head toward the Pentagon. In fact, federal workers have been encouraged to telework or take the day off. Transportation officials say the gridlock could be so bad, that it could look like a bad storm.
