Headaches on the horizon

Beltway/Route 29
Thursday night and Friday night and again on the nights of Dec. 21, 22 and 23, all four lanes on I-495 south at the Lee Highway (Route 29) overpass will close for up to half an hour several times from midnight to 5 a.m., VDOT says. The temporary closures will allow crews to install steel beams for a new bridge over the Capital Beltway that is part of the HOT lanes project.

The I-66 east and west exit ramps to I-495 south will also close all night beginning at 11 on those nights, and motorists will be detoured. Lane-closure setup on I-495 south will start at 9:30 p.m., and as traffic volumes decrease, additional lanes will be closed. All lanes will close for up to half an hour after midnight until 5 a.m.
