Traffic Ready to Switch Onto New Span

One of the area's most anticipated lane changes happens this weekend when the outer loop of the Capital Beltway is rerouted onto the new Woodrow Wilson Bridge. From Friday night to Monday morning, northbound traffic will merge into one lane while construction crews mill and pave connections from the Beltway to the bridge. This is the first of two traffic switches scheduled. The second, which will reroute inner loop lanes, will take place the weekend of July 14.
