Capital Beltway Road Closures Starting Friday

Beltway riders beware!

Starting Friday, August 5th, there will be major closures on the Capital Beltway (I-95/495) and Telegraph Road, says the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Project.  

Officials from the project say they are advising motorists to seek alternate routes in order to avoid delays and will also be providing signs with detour routes.

The closures will last until 5 a.m. on Monday, but there will be additional daytime ramp closures starting on Monday and lasting until Thursday, according to the project.

The closures/detours according to the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Project:
 
Friday, August 5 at 9 p.m. until Monday, August 8 at 5 a.m.:

There will be lane closures on the Capital Beltway Inner Loop (I-95/495 South) between
Telegraph Road and the Eisenhower Connector to lay asphalt.  The first (left) lane will close at 9 p.m. Friday; and a second (middle) lane will close at 11 p.m.  One (right) lane will remain open.  At 5 a.m. Saturday, the middle lane will reopen, allowing two lanes of traffic.  All three lanes of traffic will be restored by Monday morning at 5 a.m.  Significant Inner Loop delays are expected next weekend.
