Advisories for D.C. Drivers

Here are a couple of advisories for drivers in Northwest Washington:

Beach Drive Closings: Rock Creek's Beach Drive between Tilden Street/Park Road and Blagden Avenue will be closed periodically between 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. today and tomorrow because of a stream restoration project in the area. The construction involves landscaping and stone work adjacent to the Peirce Mill dam.

Woodley Road Work: Washington National Cathedral wants to alert drivers to possible traffic disruptions related to construction of new parking garages. Two flaggers will control traffic in the 3600 block of Woodley Road, where traffic is restricted to one lane because of utility work. To limit the impact on drop-offs and pick-ups at the cathedral schools, the work is being done between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.

On Saturday, that section of Woodley is scheduled to be closed between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. to allow room for a large crane to work.

Lastly, keep an eye out for trucks delivering soil for the project. The trucks will be approaching from Wisconsin Avenue along the construction fence. They will turn onto Woodley Road when they can enter the construction site.

This is scheduled to take four to five weeks.

Lots going on these days that affects drivers in that part of the city. There's also the Klingle Bridge project on Connecticut Avenue, the Reno Road reconstruction and the work on the Dupont Circle tunnel repair.

You do know there are traffic issues in northern Virginia too, right? DC, MD, freakin' Delaware -- you got it covered.

VA...not so much.

Maybe it's because Virginia is beyond all hope :-)

Maybe it's because Virginia drivers aren't as bad as other parts of the area and we know what the heck we're doing.

I think that VA driver has spent too much time away from his VA hospital bed and needs to begin remedicating. Good drivers? Yeesh!
