Now that summertime fun is over, time for the orange barrels to come out of hiding:

Starting this Thursday, the new bridge at I-66W over the Beltway is having steel beams put in place. I-495 will see total lane closures from 9:30 pm to 5 am Monday through Thursday nights for the next two weeks.

DDOT is closing a portion of the 1300 block of Park Road, NW. The section east of 14th Street will be shut to traffic from 7 am to 7 pm from today through Saturday.

MDOT will be shifting traffic on New Hampshire Ave near Bonifant Road / Good Hope Road for bridge construction tomorrow and Thursday.

I-270 has its share of issues, too. Resurfacing begins on a four-mile stretch between Middlebrook and Muddy Branch roads. This will force single lane closures between 9 am and 3 pm M-F and double lane closings overnights Sunday – Thursday between 7 pm and 4:30 am.

Having lived in the DC area for ten years, Ben still loves to wander the city with his wife, shooting lots of photos and exploring all the latest exhibits and galleries. A certified hockey fanatic, he spends some time debating the Washington Capitals club with friends – but everyone knows of his three decade love affair with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

A professional writer, gamer, photographer, and Lego enthusiast, Ben remains captivated by DC and doesn’t plan on leaving any time soon.
