Advisories on D.C. Road Work

Drivers, a couple of projects in the District may affect your travels today.

Potomac Freeway Ramp. The District Department of Transportation will be working on the ramp to the Whitehurst Freeway starting today at 6 a.m. and continuing to 6 a.m. Wednesday at the latest. Here's the detour: From I-66/Potomac Freeway, take a left onto Rock Creek Parkway, bear right at the yield sign on 27th Street NW, turn left onto K Street to the Whitehurst.

11th Street Bridge. As many as two outbound lanes on the 11th Street Bridge over the Anacostia may be closed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. today for some repairs.

I don't understand the directions for the detour around the Whitehurst ramp. I look on google maps and can't see your connections. Can you please be more specific?

If you're on eastbound 66 crossing the Roosvelt bridge then exit left at the end of the bridge. Keep left. You will merge onto the Potomac freeway. Get over one lane left and follow sign for Rock Creek Parkway. You will come to 27th st. Turn right on 27th. A short distance up turn left onto the Whitehurst freeway. That's what the Dr. meant. I just checked Google maps and the route is there.
