Drivers traveling near Shirlington and North Ridge or the Braddock neighborhood this weekend might want to plan ahead for some upcoming lane closures.

The first one is a planned lane closure on the Shirlington Circle south rotary bridge over I-395 — connecting Arlington and Alexandria.

“Weather permitting, the right lane will be closed from 9 p.m. Friday, April 19 to noon Saturday, April 20 on the bridge that connects the southbound I-395 collector-distributor lanes and southbound Shirlington Road to North Quaker Lane at the I-395 Exit 6 interchange,” VDOT said in a release.

The closure is part of a project to rehabilitate the bridge and extend its life. The project is scheduled for completion in mid-2025.

The second closure is on the 500 block of N. Henry Street in the Braddock neighborhood.

According to a release:

On Saturday, April 20 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., the 500 block of N. Henry Street will be reduced to a single lane between Pendleton Street and Oronoco Street due to construction activity. The Crane Service Company will be placing a crane in the roadway to hoist a new HVAC on the rooftop of 525 N. Fayette Street. The operation, which is expected to take 4 hours, requires the shutdown of two of the three lanes on N. Henry Street and a portion of the sidewalk. Merge traffic signs and parking restrictions will be posted around the area during work hours.
