More Work on Virginia Side of Wilson Bridge

The work zones on the Virginia side of the Wilson Bridge continue to be very active.

After 9 o'clock this morning, the two left-turn lanes from Route 1 south onto Fort Hunt Road in Alexandria will be closed to motorists through 5 a.m. Sunday. Workers will be installing overhead signs.

Southbound Route 1 traffic heading for Fort Hunt Road will be detoured past the intersection, then will turn left onto Huntington Avenue to the intersection with Fort Hunt Road.

Sunday and Tuesday
Parts of the Telegraph Road interchange are scheduled to close to all traffic from 11 p.m. to 5 o'clock the following morning on both Sunday night and Tuesday night. During those hours, workers will be placing steel girders. Traffic backups are very likely, and it would be best to avoid the area on those two nights.

All ramps between the Beltway and Telegraph Road will be closed with these exceptions: the ramps from the inner loop to Telegraph Road north and from the outer loop to Telegraph Road south. Drivers coming from Eisenhower Avenue and Mill Road will be able to reach the inner loop via Telegraph Road.
