Inner loop lanes to shut

[This post has been updated.]

Three lanes on the Capital Beltway's inner loop are scheduled to shut Monday night for emergency repairs to concrete on the underside of the Beltway bridge over Bradley Boulevard. The lanes to be closed are between exit 39 for River Road and the Bradley Boulevard bridge. [Thanks to jmrzx for the comment below, pointing out that in my original post, I created an exit for Bradley Boulevard that doesn't exit.]

The three left lanes in this six-lane section of the inner loop will remain open. This is before traffic divides to take either I-270 north or I-495 east. There are no closings scheduled for Bradley Boulevard, beneath the bridge.

The inner loop lanes will close in this sequence: Drivers will find one lane closed at 8 p.m., two lanes closed at 9 p.m., and three lanes shut between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. Then all lanes are scheduled to reopen.

Last I checked, there was no Bradley Blvd exit off the Beltway and according to Google maps, there is no exit 38.

From Dr. Gridlock: Thanks, jmrzx. I modified the post after checking with the State Highway Administration re Bradley Boulevard. I think exit 38 will turn out to be the designation for the left lanes that head off for I-270, but it's -- as you say -- definitely not a Bradley Boulevard exit.

That sounds right about 270 being exit 38, thanks.
