Arriving at BWI on Wed the 15th, driving question!

Hi, my family and I are arriving at BWI at about 6:30pm on Wed, Aug 15 and renting a car from Hertz. We are doing a East Coast road trip.

When we drive from BWI to Americana Hotel in Arlington, VA at 7pm, would there be traffic?

Thanks,

Sohee

At 7 p.m., rush hour traffic should be dying down.

You shouldn't encounter any traffic at all. BWI uses a centralized car rental facility. If your plane arrives at 6:30 it's unlikely you'll be leaving at 7:00 in your rental car as you have to allow time to get off the plane, catch the bus to the rental facility, do the paperwork...you'll be lucky to be on the road at 7:30 and that's if you have no checked bags. You shouldn't hit any traffic at all.
