Mixing Bowl Advisory
VDOT asked us to remind everybody about the overnight work going on this week at the Springfield Interchange that will shut down part of the Capital Beltway's outer loop.
Here's what's going on:
What/Where: Through Thursday night, 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Weather permitting, VDOT will close the Capital Beltway outer loop, I-495 East (toward the Woodrow Wilson Bridge) and the exit off the outer loop to I-395 North (toward Washington) about three-fourths of a mile before and after I-95/395 to erect the final steel span connecting the two segments of the new I-395 North bridge to the Beltway inner loop, I-495 North, expected to open this fall.
Motorist Impact: I-495 East motorists heading to the Wilson Bridge and motorists exiting the Outer Loop to I-395 North heading to Washington must exit onto I-95 South to Exit 166, Fairfax County Parkway East (Route 7100) and turn around onto I-95 North.
Motorists heading back to the outer loop (toward the Wilson Bridge) will take the left two I-95 North lanes onto the flyover ramp back to the outer loop. Motorists heading to I-395 North will take the right I-95/395 North lanes. The 10-mile detour is expected to add an additional 30 minutes travel time especially between the hours of 9 p.m. to midnight.
Additional night work on I-395 South and North and the Beltway inner loop will also occur during this timeframe but is not expected to affect the outer loop detour.
