UPDATED 6:15 AM

An earlier accident on I-95 in Darien has cleared, and traffic is light across the region.

There are no delays on the Merritt Parkway, I-95 or Routes 7, 8 and 25.

Metro North trains are running on or close to schedule.

UPDATE: 5:39 AM

Sunrise

It should be a good day on the roads and rails today.

Many people are off today for Good Friday, the beginning of Easter weekend. And many school districts are also off on spring break.

Theoretically, it should be an easy AM commute. But we all know that can change quickly.

Early this morning there are no accidents on major highways or overnight road work to slow traffic.

Metro-North says most trains are running on or close to schedule. The 5:43 AM out of Stamford to Grand Central Terminal, however, is running 7 minutes late.

Let’s hope it lasts.
