Weekend repairs on Va. Beltway

Emergency repairs on a Capital Beltway bridge over Cameron Run are scheduled for this weekend, and the work is likely to back up traffic considerably on the inner loop at Virginia's Telegraph Road interchange.

Dodging highway work zones

Dear Dr. Gridlock: We live near the Wilson Bridge and have to drive to Dulles Airport. Would we better off to drive via Arlington and Interstate 66 to the Dulles Toll Road and not take the western side of the Beltway and all that construction?

Headaches on the horizon

In a previous posting, I warned drivers about the delays likely this weekend on the Capital Beltway's outer loop in Virginia near the Wilson Bridge. But there's a related project starting in the same neighborhood Sunday night. This other work at the Telegraph Road interchange will have a significant impact on traffic throughout the week.

Weekend delays on Beltway

Traffic on the outer loop in Virginia approaching the Wilson Bridge will be backed up this weekend as workers shift the Capital Beltway lanes outward into a new configuration between the Eisenhower Connector and Telegraph Road.

The weekend and beyond

This will be a busy weekend for travelers in the Washington area, and then as the work week resumes, getting around gets even more challenging.

Headaches on the horizon

Beltway/Telegraph Road Work that began this weekend marks a significant new phase in reconstruction of the Capital Beltway's Telegraph Road interchange, part of the Wilson Bridge project. Commuters will need to be extra alert for a new traffic pattern through the interchange area. The outer loop exit to Telegraph Road north is being rerouted, and ramps for the inner loop are being realigned. This will allow workers to complete the ramps and replace portions of old Beltway bridges during the 2010 construction season. Delays for Beltway drivers are not likely to worsen, project managers say. But traffic on the ramp from the outer loop to Telegraph Road might be delayed up to 15 minutes. Also, for the next eight months, the morning northbound rush-hour travel time on Telegraph Road could take up to 20 minutes longer. VRE parking enforcement VRE warns drivers that Manassas police began ticketing for parking violations...
