WASHINGTON BOULEVARD OVERNIGHT WORK THIS WEEK
VDOT crews working on bridge piers near Pentagon

ARLINGTON – Drivers can expect lane closures at Washington Boulevard (Route 27) over Jefferson Davis Highway (Route 110) from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday, Jan. 11 and Tuesday, Jan. 12, weather permitting, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation. Crews will begin the next phase of construction on two bridge piers, located in the median.

The work schedule includes:

• The existing three lanes on Route 110 have been narrowed to two lanes with traffic barrels in both directions for crews to install temporary striping. Monday and Tuesday night, crews will replace the barrels and install temporary concrete barrier to allow construction on the bridge pier, located in the median.

• The ramp from northbound Route 27 to westbound Route 110 will be narrowed to a width of ten feet to allow for construction on the bridge pier, located in the median.

Message signs have been installed to notify commuters.

This phase of construction is scheduled to last four months. The work is part of the project to rehabilitate the Route 27 bridge over Route 110 close to the Pentagon. The $31.5 million project is scheduled for completion in May 2018.
