Headaches on the horizon

Nuke summit
Whatever D.C. commuters did on Monday -- changed their travel time, changed from driving to transit or just remained home -- they should do again on Tuesday, as the nuclear summit security zone remains in place at Mount Vernon Square.

Inter-city buses that normally stop in the parking lot at City Center Parking Lot on Ninth Street NW between New York Avenue and H Street have temporarily moved to Union Station. Normal operations will resume Thursday.

I-95 widening
Several lanes of Interstate 95 north between Route 1 and the Fairfax County Parkway will be closed from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. each night through Thursday. After 10:30 each night, HOV reversible lanes could be used to bypass the work zone.

Metrorail extension
Lanes will close overnight on Route 7 in Tysons Corner. Workers will be restoring pavement and curbing in areas where utility relocations have occurred to prepare for construction of the Dulles Metrorail line. Most of the lane closings will take place between 9:30 p.m. and 5 a.m.

Intercounty Connector
The Maryland State Highway Administration is closing Bonifant Road between Alderton Road and Carona Drive each weeknight to build a bridge that will carry the Intercounty Connector over Bonifant.

The closing hours are midnight to 5 a.m. Drivers will be routed around the area using other roadway that include Route Layhill Road, Norbeck Road, Norwood Road and New Hampshire Avenue.
