The Washington Post

Arlington Route 50 to be torn up? Really? REALLY?

“I told you about Strawberry Fields, you know the place where nothing is real? Where here’s another place you can go, where everything flows..” Where? Everything flows? Let me guess, that’s not real either... (APPLE CORPS LTD.)

Really? REALLY?

That adds to: I-66 in Fairfax at nights (good luck getting from DC to anywhere west of the Beltway after 9 p.m. for the next few years); the Beltway at all times; Constitution Avenue and its ripple effect on the bridges to the city; Tysons Corner, just don’t even think about it; the 14th Street bridge, maybe done this fall...zowie.

If I knew how to do this on a computer, I would make a map of NoVa and just draw a big RED X on it. You can’t get out. You can’t get in. We’ll call it State of NoVa Penitentiary and Kabobs. The kabobs are quite good, though.

The details, including detours through the Courthouse area of Arlington (double UGH), are here, if you dare.
