Headaches on the horizon
Showers will continue into the night, says the Capital Weather Gang. It's unclear how much road work will get done Monday night because of the weather, but Metrorail doesn't have that problem.
Beltway HOT lanes
If the weather permits, here's what's supposed to happen between 9:30 p.m. and 5 a.m.
-- Two lanes of Leesburg Pike (Route 7) east are scheduled to close for utility work from the Dulles Toll Road (Route 267) to Spring Hill Road.
-- A single left lane of Dolley Madison Boulevard (Route 123) north between Old Meadow Road and Anderson Road is scheduled to close for utility work.
-- A single lane of Leesburg Pike (Route 7) west between Spring Hill Road and Westpark Drive is scheduled to close for utility work.
Beltway in Prince George's
You may notice this project getting underway: The Maryland State Highway Administration is scheduled to begin resurfacing 4.6 miles of the Beltway's outer loop between Branch Avenue and D'Arcy Road. The project also includes a half-mile of Pennsylvania Avenue between the Beltway and Old Marlboro Pike/Westphalia Road and the exit ramp from Forestville Road to the outer loop.
Watch for single lane closings on weeknights from 8 to 9 p.m. and double lane closings Sunday through Thursday nights from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
