It will be a long commute in store for drivers in the Boston area after medical emergencies and accidents slowed traffic down to a crawl on major highways.
Drivers are experiencing heavy delays on Route 128. Earlier accidents in Peabody and Lynnfield on the southbound side are making for a very tough ride. The heaviest traffic on 128 remains on the southbound side from I-95 to Rt 2.
It is also a slow ride on I-93 soutbound coming into Boston starting in the Merrimack Valley. An earlier accident in Wilmington pushed traffic back toward River Rd. A medical emergency in the breakdown lane on I-93 south near Sullivan Square is also slowing down the ride.
