Wilson Bridge Lanes Open But Work Continues
All four of the bridge's Thru lanes are open and should provide relief from congestion, but there's still the Telegraph Road interchange project, among other things left complete before the overall project is done.
This week, Telegraph Road is scheduled to be closed between Huntington Avenue and North Kings Highway from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. tonight through Friday morning and again on Monday and Tuesday of next week. This is for ramp bridge construction.
Workers will be erecting and connecting steel beams for the second of two bridges over Telegraph Road as part of ramps that will eventually carry traffic from the Capital Beltway's outer loop to North Kings Highway and Huntington Avenue, project managers announced today.
During the closure hours, northbound traffic will be detoured via North Kings Highway to Route 1 to Huntington Avenue and back to Telegraph Road. Southbound traffic will be detoured via Huntington Avenue to Route 1 to North Kings Highway and back to Telegraph Road.
Stand by for further announcements. Over the next two months,Telegraph Road may be reduced to two lanes in each direction from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. And at nights, it be reduced to one lane in each direction from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
