Lane Closings at Telegraph Road Interchange

Seems like most of my traffic advisories lately have to do with all the work at Tysons on the western side of the Beltway, but here's a reminder of the continuing work on the eastern side, at Telegraph Road.

Starting tonight, there will complete one-way closings this week of Telegraph Road and interchange ramps around the Capital Beltway for bridge construction. This work, which is part of the Wilson Bridge Project, will cause traffic delays.

Tonight and Wednesday, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night:
-- Southbound Telegraph Road between Duke Street and Huntington Avenue will be closed. Detour on Duke Street east to Route 1 South to Huntington Avenue westbound and back to southbound Telegraph Road.
-- Traffic in the Eisenhower Valley will be able to use the ramp to reach the Beltway's inner loop from Telegraph Road, but there will be no access from Telegraph Road southbound to the ramp to the outer loop.
-- The exit from the inner loop to southbound Telegraph Road will be closed. The detour is southbound on Route 1 to westbound Huntington Avenue back to southbound Telegraph Road.
-- Drivers coming from the inner loop into the Eisenhower Valley will be able to use the Telegraph Road North and Pershing Avenue exits.

Thursday and Friday nights, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night:
-- Northbound Telegraph Road between Huntington Avenue and Duke Street and ramps to both loops of the Beltway will be closed. Detour on eastbound Huntington Avenue to northbound Route 1 to the Beltway ramps.
Drivers heading from the inner loop to to the Eisenhower Valley will be able to use the Telegraph Road North and Pershing Avenue exits.
