11th Street Bridge
Watch for off-peak lane closings this week on the inbound bridge and adjacent portions of DC 295/I-295. From 7:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., Monday through Friday, closings may include one lane and the shoulder in each direction of DC 295/I-295 between Pennsylvania Avenue and Howard Road.

Beltway ramp work
The Wilson Bridge project this week will finish up overnight demolition of the old ramp from the Capital Beltway outer loop (I-95/495 north) to Telegraph Road north. Additional closings also are scheduled throughout the Telegraph Road interchange to prepare for a weekend traffic switch on the outer loop.

There will be some overnight lane closings for safety while contractors remove girders and saw and lift portions of the remaining ramp.
