Headaches on the horizon
Work that began this weekend marks a significant new phase in reconstruction of the Capital Beltway's Telegraph Road interchange, part of the Wilson Bridge project.
Commuters will need to be extra alert for a new traffic pattern through the interchange area.
The outer loop exit to Telegraph Road north is being rerouted, and ramps for the inner loop are being realigned. This will allow workers to complete the ramps and replace portions of old Beltway bridges during the 2010 construction season.
Delays for Beltway drivers are not likely to worsen, project managers say. But traffic on the ramp from the outer loop to Telegraph Road might be delayed up to 15 minutes. Also, for the next eight months, the morning northbound rush-hour travel time on Telegraph Road could take up to 20 minutes longer.
VRE parking enforcement
VRE warns drivers that Manassas police began ticketing for parking violations on Monday. Riders should make sure they have the proper parking permit and park in places allowed by the permit.
Pile driving near Wiehle Avenue Station
Crews working on the Dulles Rail extension will be driving piles to support pedestrian bridges through Wednesday. The work will occur between 9:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. each day.
Rail project officials warn that motorists should expect lane closures in the work area near Wiehle Avenue.
