This Spring saw the renovation of the road deck on top of the Chain Bridge that joins NW DC and the far northern edge of Arlington County, and closed the bridge for a number of weekends of work. This Fall will be no different, but this time, they’ll be working up underneath the bridge. This weekend will be the first of many weekends that the bridge will be closed, with closures beginning Friday at 8p and ending on Monday at 5a.
Closures will also include the sidewalk, so cyclists and pedestrians will also need to re-route. The nearest alternatives are the Legion Bridge (495) and the Key Bridge (Route 29).
