Headaches on the horizon

Route 123 in Tysons: Be very careful traveling south on Chain Bridge Road (Route 123) through noon Wednesday. The right-turn lane to Capital One Drive will be closed so workers on the Dulles Metrorail project can remove poles in the area. Right turns to Capital One Drive will be allowed from the right through lane.

Also, the rail project announced, a short stretch of the right lane will be closed between the Capital Beltway off-ramps and on-ramps during the days. At night, there will be numerous closings near Tysons Boulevard and International Drive, because of utility work. Watch for police out directing traffic.

Orange cones up: The Maryland State Highway Administration has lifted its short-term lane closings until Monday. The Virginia Department of Transportation will suspend temporary lane closings from noon Wednesday to noon Monday.

Peak Thanksgiving traffic: The worst times to escape the Washington area on Wednesday are likely to be noon to 8 p.m.
