So Far, So Good at Wilson Bridge

As Washington wakes up, the traffic along the Capital Beltway and on I-95 in Virginia looks pretty good, under the circumstances. Those being that a massive amount of work is going on at the Woodrow WIlson Bridge this weekend.

There's a steady stream of single-lane traffic heading across the bridge from Virginia to Maryland. Farther back on the outer loop, it looks like the warnings and detours are having the desired effect of keeping traffic away.

At the Potomac crossing, the main event involves preparations for the opening of the first of the two new spans. That's supposed to happen today. But to make that happen, crews had to narrow down the traffic on the outer loop to one lane, so there are severe restrictions on northbound travel.

If drivers in the Washington area and long-range travelers do not heed the warnings that project managers have been issuing, that would back up traffic for many miles and the delays could last for several hours.

You can find the latest Post story about it here.

This link will take you to a map illustrating the detours.
