Weekend detour at Va. Beltway ramp

The Virginia Department of Transportation plans to detour traffic from a Capital Beltway exit ramp this weekend as part of the high-occupancy toll lanes project.

From 9:30 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday, Exit 52A from the inner loop to the westbound Little River Turnpike (Route 236) will be closed. Here’s the detour:

Continue on the inner loop to Exit 51 for Gallows Road (Route 650), turn left over the Beltway and follow signs onto I-495 south (the outer loop) to Exit 52A for westbound Little River Turnpike.

Inner loop drivers may encounter delays during peak travel times this weekend approaching the Little River Turnpike interchange.
