Headaches on the horizon
The snow arriving in the D.C. region will cancel much roadwork overnight, including construction on the Capital Beltway HOT lanes and on the Dulles Metrorail project.
The District was again forced by weather to postpone work on the Anacostia Freeway that is part of the 11th Street Bridges construction project. This is the new schedule:
- On Thursday, between midnight and 5 a.m., the entire southbound freeway, between the Pennsylvania Avenue and Howard Road exits, will be closed to traffic for multiple 40-minute intervals. The right lane will be closed beginning at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.
- On Friday, between midnight and 5 a.m., the entire northbound freeway, between the 11th Street Bridges and Pennsylvania Avenue, will be closed to traffic for multiple 40-minute intervals. In addition, the right lane will be closed beginning at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
That deals with the man-made delays overnight, but there's still Mother Nature to contend with.
All the region's highway departments have crews out. Metro anticipates close to normal service on Metrorail but says riders could encounter delays on Metrobus and MetroAccess.
