It's a rainout tonight for the contruction at the Telegraph Road interchange that has caused extensive overnight delays on the Capital Beltway. The work has been postponed till Tuesday night.

Here's a review of what's involved.

On Tuesday, April 21, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.: Outer loop traffic from east of the Eisenhower Avenue Connector to east of Telegraph Road will be narrowed to one lane. Immediately after work zone, all Thru and Local lanes will be open.

Ramps from the directions of Telegraph Road to the outer loop will be closed.
Detour: Traffic heading to the outer loop from Telegraph Road will be detoured to Huntington Avenue eastbound and to Route 1 northbound.

The ramp from the outer loop to Telegraph Road southbound will be closed.

The ramp bridge under construction is part of a new split ramp that will carry traffic from the outer loop back over the Beltway into Eisenhower Valley or onto Telegraph Road northbound. It is scheduled to be open next spring.
