Headaches on the horizon

I-295 lane closing
After the morning rush Tuesday, the District Department of Transportation plans to close one northbound lane on Interstate 295 to repair sensors in the roadway.

The right through-lane just south of the Laboratory Road exit will be closed from about 8:30 a.m. until 5 a.m. Wednesday. One through lane will remain open for northbound traffic. Stay left to get by. Delays are possible.

Metrorail night work
Red Line trains are sharing a single track after 10 p.m. between Medical Center and Friendship Heights. On the Blue and Orange lines, single tracking will occur after 10 p.m. between Federal Center and Eastern Market. On the Yellow Line, the single tracking after 10 p.m. occurs between Pentagon City and L'Enfant Plaza.

Telegraph Road/Beltway
Reconstruction of the Telegraph Road interchange west of the Wilson Bridge will require lane and ramp closings all week. Workers are demolishing bridge piers, grading and paving. From Monday night through Friday morning, overnight demolition will continue over the Beltway and Telegraph Road North. That will mean lane closures.

Beltway HOT lanes
If the rain doesn't interfere, the Beltway inner loop is scheduled to close at Exit 49 (Interstate 66) and at Exit 169 B/A (Route 644) between 9:30 p.m. and 5 a.m. while steel beams are erected for bridges. Detours will be posted in both places.

Metrorail construction
Watch for lane closings on Route 7 (Leesburg Pike) at Westwood Drive between 9:30 p.m. and 5 a.m.
