-- An article in today's Weekend section, which was printed in advance, contains incorrect directions to Gravelly Point. The correct directions follow: You can get to the Arlington park only if you are heading north on George Washington Memorial Parkway. If you are heading south, turn around by going through the airport and follow signs to get on the parkway in the other direction.

-- A photo caption with a March 29 A-section article incorrectly said that workers in the photograph were finishing a park fountain in Chicago in preparation for an International Olympic Committee visit. The fountain, in Millennium Park, was finished in 2004; workers were pictured cleaning it and performing maintenance last Friday.

-- A photo caption with a Jan. 17 A-section article incorrectly identified Navy Lt. Cmdr. David Kohnen as a member of the Coast Guard.
