The District Department of Transportation will close a ramp leading from the Teddy Roosevelt Bridge for several hours each day over the next month, which could create headaches for travelers.

Maintenance work will close the ramp from westbound Interstate 66 to the George Washington Parkway between 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. each day. These closures are scheduled to begin on Monday and will last until Oct. 14, if the weather cooperates.

There will be a detour in place guiding traffic to westbound Route 50, then to North Lynn Street and onto the George Washington Parkway. Temporary signs in place should help drivers navigate the detour, but drivers should watch for potential delays around the closed ramp.
