Lawrence Schoen wrote (HQ 11.3:13 [Sep 2002]):

  On his drive up to attend {qep'a' HutDIch}, it is believed
  that Marc Okrand was in communication with Maltz (the precise
  mechanics responsible for this are unknown and unimportant
  to the present concern). Traffic along the interstate was 
  particularly heavy, a topic which at some point entered into 
  the conversation. Dr. Okrand reports that Maltz volunteered 
  the Klingon term {Hutvagh}, a noun, meaning "too many people
  or things in a place all at once". Maltz further indicated
  that the term was used as word play, a substitution for the
  more common {Qu'vatlh} which might otherwise be heard in such
  situations.

PUN: 
I-95 is the interstate highway between Washington D.C. and Philadelphia.

Related words:

ghom'a' 	crowd (n)

qev 		crowd (v)
mob 		be alone (v)
