Headaches on the Horizon

I-66 Lane Closure
Work along a stretch of I-66 near the Dulles Connector Road (Route 267) will begin Wednesday night as part of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail project.

Crews will close the left lane of westbound I-66 from just east of the Great Falls Street overpass to the Dulles Connector Road (Route 267) flyover. They will clear trees in the median between the roadway and the Orange Line tracks. This work is scheduled for Wednesday and Friday nights from midnight to 5 a.m.

Barrier placements will force the closure of two right lanes of westbound I-66 on Thursday night only.

Central Avenue Ramp Closure
The Maryland State Highway Administration will close the ramp from eastbound MD 214 (Central Avenue) to southbound I-95/I-495 (Capital Beltway). Roadwork will include milling and resurfacing the existing pavement, and adding new pavement markings.

Crews will close the Central Avenue ramp overnight between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. Wednesday. In case of inclement weather, crews will work the next available evening.

Be prepared for delays near the interchanges. Crews will direct drivers to the westbound Central Avenue ramp to northbound I-95/I-495, then to Exit 17 (westbound MD 202/Landover Road) to a left turn back to the ramp for southbound I-95/I-495.

Telegraph Road Closure
Officials with the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Project have scheduled the complete overnight closure of Telegraph Road and associated ramps in the area of the Capital Beltway from 11 p.m. Wednesday to 5 a.m. Thursday.

You should expect delays in the area, and officials are encouraging motorists to take other routes.

Crews will stop traffic in both directions on Telegraph Road between Duke Street and Huntington Avenue to pour concrete. All associated ramps to and from the Beltway will also be closed. However, motorists traveling from the inner loop into the Eisenhower Valley will be able to use the Pershing Avenue exit.

The detours for northbound and southbound Telegraph Road are as follows:
Northbound: Huntington Avenue east to U.S. Route 1 North to Duke Street west.
Southbound: Duke Street east to U.S. Route 1 south to Huntington Avenue west to Telegraph Road south.
