I-66, I-495 traffic congestion expected Friday

      Motorists and commuters can expect major traffic delays this Friday due to the motorcycle tribute to commemorate the Sept. 11 attacks.

      An estimated 1,800 motorcycles are expected to roll through Northern Virginia to remember the victims of the 9/11 attacks, aftermath and recovery. The riders travel from Somerset, Pa., to the Pentagon over four days.

      Heavy congestion is expected on I-66 and I-495.
