10/18/2010Emergency Work under Bradley Boulevard over I-495


Starting at 8 p.m. tonight, the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) will temporarily close three right lanes on northbound I-495 (Capital Beltway) between Exit 39 (MD 190 - River Road) and Exit 38 (MD 191-Bradley Boulevard) in Carderock.  The lane closures are necessary for concrete repairs to the underside of the MD 191 bridge over I-495. 


SHA will close one lane starting at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m., two lanes at 9 p.m., and three lanes between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.  The lane closures are necessary for the safety of both work crews and drivers.  Three left lanes of the six-lane section will remain open for traffic, allowing motorists access to I-495 east and I-270 north once they drive beyond the work zone. All of the work will be completed underneath the bridge; no lanes will be affected on MD 191. 


Customers who have questions about traffic operations along I-495, MD 190, MD 191 or other State numbered routes in Montgomery County may call SHA’s District 3 Office at 301-513-7300 or toll free at 1-800-749-0737.
