More Work on GW Parkway

A new construction project is scheduled to start today on the George Washington Parkway. This work will stabilize the bank along Pimmit Run to protect the bridge pier from erosion.

Watch for lane closures during off peak hours along the bridge, which is about a mile south of Route 123 in McLean.

One lane in each direction will always be open. Closures of the right lane on the parkway's southbound side can occur between 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. But traffic delays also will result when trucks enter and leave the parkway.

The project is scheduled to be done in December.

Meanwhile, work continues farther south on rebuilding the parkway's Humpback Bridge, just west of I-395. You can read the latest about that project here. So far, that doesn't seem to be causing commuters nearly as much grief as the year-old Rock Creek Parkway reconstruction has.
