Beltway lanes closed in Alexandria

The Woodrow Wilson Bridge Project today announced that the two right lanes of the inner loop of the Beltway would be closed today and Tuesday night to fix potholes opened by the recent storms.

The rest of the press release follows:

Inner Loop traffic is restricted to the left lane in this area; this configuration is expected to remain in place until the start of rush hour this evening, February 15. Motorists should expect significant back-ups on this portion of the Inner Loop and consider alternate routes to avoid major delays.

Traffic will also be restricted to one lane on this section of the Inner Loop tomorrow night, February 16, from 8 p.m. until 5 a.m. Wednesday morning for more permanent pothole repairs to the Cameron Run bridge.

Please use caution when traveling in this area. All construction-related work and dates are subject to change, depending on weather, material and contractor availability or other unforeseen conditions.

Go to for the latest traffic and project information.

Plowed snow has taken over two lanes (one on each side) of the Am Legion Bridge. Is this snow going to be removed?

These are the same lanes that were closed during the Bridge painting project a few years back. Back then it caused lots of jams and it backed up the GW Parkway. My assumption is that this is MD's job, but I am not sure. This snow is not going to melt for 3-4 weeks I am guessing.

Help! Where I can I complain? I realize that we can't haul snow off of every road, but this is a huge bottleneck that impacts a large number of people already. I predict horrible traffic until this snow is removed.
