Parkway Bridge Update

Since the big reconstruction project started in January on the George Washington Parkway's Humpback Bridge, I haven't heard many complaints from drivers, bikers or walkers. And I hope that means that the work so far has not caused much difficulty.

This week's activity: On the southbound side, the right lane is closed from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Lane closures are never permitted during the peak periods, though just the presence of such a project is likely to cause slowdowns during times when the traffic volume is high.

This project is still just getting underway, and isn't scheduled to be finished till spring 2010.

Each week, the Federal Highway Administration, which is doing the job in conjunction with the National Park Service, posts an update on its Humpback Bridge page. You can find more details about the project and its goals on this page.

Right now, the work involves excavation of the roaday, removal of stone from the west side of the bridge and relocation of power lines from under the bridge.
