Headaches on the horizon

Nationals Park
If you're Strasburg-bound tonight, a couple of reminders:

-- Traffic is likely to be heavy this evening on the 14th Street Bridge, the Southeast-Southwest Freeway and the intersections near South Capitol and M streets. Watch out for traffic control officers and police at the intersections.
-- There's no more Nats Express and no more free parking at RFK Stadium for Nationals games.
-- Metrorail is a good choice, but it's going to be very crowded before and after the 7:05 p.m. game. That's not just at the Green Line's Navy Yard Station. The transfer points L'Enfant Plaza and Gallery Place also will be jammed. See more travel tips for Nationals Park.

Beltway HOT lanes
This work is scheduled for 9:30 p.m. to 5 a.m.
-- I-495 north at I-66 will close for steel beam erection.
-- Chain Bridge Road (Route 123) north at Westpark Drive will close for steel beam erection.
-- Westpark Drive east and west at Chain Bridge Road (Route 123) will close for steel beam erection.
-- Chain Bridge Road (Route 123) south at Westpark Drive will close for steel beam erection.

I-95 widening
Three right lanes of I-95 north will close from just north of Lorton Road (Route 642) to the Pohick Road overpass from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. for milling, paving, and restriping.

Dulles Metrorail
These closings are scheduled for 9:30 p.m. through 5 a.m.
-- Magarity Road north and south from Olney Road to Great Falls Street will close for bridge deck work. Through traffic will be directed to take Great Falls St. to Old Chain Bridge Road to Anderson Road back to Magarity Road and vice versa.
-- The Dulles Access Road east at Spring Hill Road will close for pier work. All traffic must exit at Spring Hill Road. Traffic will not be tolled.
