The week ahead for traffic, transit

Welcome back to the week. Here are some of the things to watch for during your travels.

Old Chain Bridge Road
Today and Tuesday, Old Chain Bridge Road between Seneca Avenue and Hallcrest Drive near the Dulles Connector Road bridge in McLean will go down to a single
lane between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Flaggers will direct traffic. The work is part of the Metrorail extension through Tysons.

Metro weeknight delays
Metro today released its plan for night time track work during November. Use this link to see the full list. But basically, riders should add at least 20 minutes to a half an hour onto normal trip times from Sunday through Thursday nights between 9:30 p.m. and the midnight closing on the Red, Blue, Orange and Yellow lines.

There won't be any night time track work on Thanksgiving, Nov. 26.

Route 301 bridge
At about 9 a.m. Tuesday, traffic on the southbound Route 301 bridge over Route 214 (Central Avenue) will be shifted to the newly re-decked side. Then rehabilitation work will start on the other side.

During the day, there will be one through lane along southbound Route 301. Once the switch is complete, traffic will be able to use the through lane and one shoulder. This switch should be done before the afternoon rush.

Nice Bridge congestion
Single lane closings for the toll plaza work on the Nice Bridge will continue through Nov. 13. These closings and flagging operations can occur from 12:01 a.m. Tuesday to noon Friday each week.

Maryland Beltway paving
The paving project between the American Legion Bridge and Interstate 270 will be concentrating on the Capital Beltway ramps this week. There will be ramp closings from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday.

Veirs Mill Road paving
Look for single lane closings between Norbeck Road and Rock Creek Bridge from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays.

I-95 South night work
From 9:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. tonight through Thursday night, right right lane will be closed between Exit 167 (Backlick Road) and Exit 166 (Fairfax County Parkway). Workers will be setting up concrete barriers as part of the Fairfax County Parkway extension.
