Lane closures in place near Virginia's Woodrow Wilson Bridge

| 4/10/2006

Major traffic changes are currently underway for the ongoing Woodrow Wilson Bridge project in Alexandria, VA.

Beginning on or about April 11, two-way traffic on South Washington Street, along with pedestrian access, will shift to the west side of the Beltway overpass to allow construction of the fourth and final portion of the new overpass – the northeastern quadrant.

According to a press release, the existing three-lane configuration will remain until the overpass is completed this fall, when the entire northern portion of the overpass is expected to be complete.

At that point, workers will be finishing final details on the new overpass such as plantings, landscaping and lighting. Overall completion of the new overpass is slated for the end of the 2006 calendar year.
