Route 123 ramps realigned in Tysons

Beginning at 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, all southbound lanes of the Capital Beltway bridge over Route 123 in Tysons Corner will shift onto a new adjacent bridge. The shift will be in place by 5 a.m. Thursday. As a result, exit ramps to Route 123 north and south have been realigned. The segment of Route 123 under the Beltway will be closed one weekend this month to demolish the old bridge.

I've got some suggestions on the best times for you to be traveling and the routes to take to popular destinations.

New Beltway bridge opening

The Capital Beltway's outer loop is scheduled to shift onto a new bridge over Route 123 in Tysons Corner next week, as the HOT lanes project advances another step. The Beltway traffic shift, set for Wednesday night, will be followed eight days later by a full weekend closing of Route 123 to demolish the old outer loop bridge.

Headaches on the horizon

Severe thunderstorms are possible through the evening, according to the Capital Weather Gang. That will dampen a lot of the road work scheduled for the D.C. region. Here's word about advances on a couple of projects.
