Lane Closure in Ballston

It’s that time of the year again, with all those construction workers making us think there’s been a popularity surge for the Village People. This time it’s a lane closure along Wilson Ave. that will tie up your traffic.

From the Arlington County Web site:

4200 Wilson Blvd. (at Ballston Mall entrance) between N. Stuart St. and N. Randolph St.:One of four lanes will be closed at a time beginning July 16 between the hours of 8:00pm and 5:00am to allow for the installation of a new pedestrian traffic signal. Anticipated completion date is July 20th. Work will be performed during off-peak hours to minimize the impact on traffic, to ensure pedestrian safety, and to avoid the need for detours. Area residents may experience an increase in noise levels during this time; however every effort will be made to keep the disruption at a minimum.

Traffic can be hairy anyway, so be sure to give yourself some extra time going through that area. And if you see a biker, Indian chief and sailor hanging out together, be sure to buy them a beer and keep them company. They’re just waiting for the construction project to be done so they can get back to the concert.
