The 14th Street Bridge, caught in an uncharacteristically empty moment
Reason number 34,567,890 to not live in Virginia. According to the Washington Examiner: Mayor Adrian Fenty announced a $27 million rehabilitation project for the 14th Street Bridge. Construction will begin mid-May.
The most affected drivers will be those crossing into D.C. “Work northbound is slated to take place between 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekdays, at nights and on weekends,” the article states. Work on the southbound side and the HOV lanes will take place during the evenings and weekends.
And if you think this news is coming out of the blue, you’re not alone: “Lon Anderson, spokesman for AAA Mid-Atlantic, said the rehabilitation effort is much needed, but the District has not provided commuters enough notice to change their patterns.”
