Legion Bridge Lane Closed

The Maryland State Highway Administration says it is closing the left lane on the Capital Beltway's inner loop at the American Legion Bridge as a precaution, because a routine inspection today revealed a crack in one of the interior steel beams.

Over the weekend, workers will reinforce the bridge with a temporary support, the SHA said. That work may require an additional lane closure. All the lanes should be open by early next week and permanent repairs will be made soon, SHA Administrator Neil J. Pedersen said in a statement.
