Traveling around D.C.? Avoid 14th Street Bridge
Baltimoreans who visit Washington and Northern Virginia should seek alternatives to the 14th Street Bridge -- now and for the next two years.
A massive rehabilitation project will tie up traffic and lead to periodic lane closings on the bridge both on weekdays and weekends, an article in the Washington Examiner explains. Work on the bridge is now under way after a reprieve for the Memorial Day holiday.
Good alternatives include the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, which can be used to reach Alexandria, Va. and southbound Interstate 95. If your destination is near a Metro station, consider parking at Greenbelt (Green Line) or Glenmont (Red Line) and taking the subway.
