Inner Loop Triple Lane Closure Starts in Maryland Wednesday
Work at the inner loop of the Capital Beltway will begin at Kenilworth Avenue starting Wednesday night.
Three right lanes on the southbound Capital Beltway, or inner loop, at Kenilworth Avenue (Rt. 201) will close Wednesday night and each night through Friday, according to the State Highway Administration (SHA).
The highway administration is removing construction equipment from the ongoing bridge project in Greenbelt.
The work will begin at 9 p.m. each night and lanes will reopen to traffic by 5 a.m. on the following mornings, weather permitting, SHA reports. On each night, SHA plans to close one right lane at 9 p.m., two at 10 p.m., and three at midnight.
SHA tells motorists to stay alert and to look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes, and highway workers. It also asks drivers to slow down and not follow other vehicles too closely through the work zone.
