Capital Beltway drivers will experience delays extending as far as four miles on the inner loop this weekend as the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Project shifts lanes onto new roadway between the Telegraph Road interchange and the Eisenhower Connector.

Starting after rush hour Friday, crews will close onramps to the inner loop from northbound and southbound Telegraph Road. The right-most lane of the inner loop will also be closed just west of Telegraph Road, with the center and left lanes remaining open.

On Saturday morning, traffic will be fully diverted to the right onto two new inner loop lanes. At this time, Exit 174 from the inner loop to the Eisenhower Connector will reopen. On Saturday night, a third new inner loop lane will open, allowing for a full three lanes of traffic on the new inner loop roadway. The onramps from Telegraph Road also will be reopened.
