Weekend Delays Likely at Beltway/Telegraph Rd.
Stay away from the Capital Beltway at Telegraph Road this weekend. There are some good things happening with new ramps opening, but in the process there are plenty of lane closures from Friday night into Monday morning.
The inner loop's Thru and Local Lanes will go down to one lane each and the ramp from Telegraph Road north to the inner loop will close till 5 a.m. Monday. Ramp detour: Continue north past the ramp, turn right on Pershing Avenue, right on Stovall Avenue, right on Eisenhower Avenue, right onto Mill Road and right onto Telegraph Road South to the inner loop.
Meanwhile, the ramp from the outer loop to Telegraph Road south will be closed till 10 p.m. Saturday. Detour: Take the Telegraph Road North exit, go right on Pershing Avenue, right on Stovall Avenue, right on Eisenhower Avenue, right onto Mill Road and right onto Telegraph Road South.
This is the good part: The weekend closings will clear the way for a traffic shift onto new elevated ramps taking vehicles over Telegraph Road to Huntington Avenue and North Kings Highway, or directly to Telegraph Road south. Also, a ramp wil open from southbound Telegraph Road and tie into the elevated ramp to Huntington Avenue, allowing motorists to make a right onto the ramp and eliminating the need to pass through a traffic signal to make a left onto Huntington Avenue.
