Traffic was flowing mostly smoothly during Wednesday morning's sunny Hudson Valley commute, although a few incidents were causing traffic delays, and Metro-North Railroad's New Haven line faced minor delays.

The railroad was reporting delays of five to 10 minutes on the New Haven line due to earlier police activity. No further details were immediately available. Service was reported normal on the Harlem and Hudson lines.

In Yonkers, a disabled vehicle was blocking the right lane of the northbound Saw Mill River Parkway north of Exit 3 (McLean Avenue), causing delays back to the Henry Hudson Parkway.

There was an accident on eastbound I-287 between the I-684 exit and the Hutchinson River Parkway exit, the state Department of Transportation reported.

A car fire on northbound Interstate 684 near Exit 8 (Hardscrabble Road) that had caused slow traffic was cleared about 7:45 a.m., News12 reported.

Normal rush hour traffic caused delays on the southbound New York State Thruway between the Garden State Parkway and Palisades Interstate Parkway, News12 reported.

A disabled tractor-trailer was blocking the shoulder on the northbound I-87 service road at the Cross County Parkway interchange in Yonkers but wasn't causing delays, News12 reported.

Conditions were good on the Taconic State Parkway, according to the Department of Transportation.
