A planned Woodrow Wilson Bridge opening tonight could disrupt travel plans for late-night drivers on I-495.
According to an alert, the bridge could be impassable from 11 p.m. tonight (Tuesday) until sometime Wednesday morning (Nov. 18). VDOT warned that travellers should expect delays and consider other routes.
The closure is planned for testing systems on the bridge, sadly — no interesting ship activity on the docket.
Alexandria: The Woodrow Wilson Bridge will have maintenance openings tonight beginning at 11PM. Expect delays and consider alternate routes. @MDSHA
