Lanes and ramps on the Capital Beltway will be closed this week as crews continue work for the Wilson Bridge project.

Starting Monday, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., drivers will find both the Inner Loop and the Outer Loop narrowed to two lanes over Cameron Run, which is near Telegraph Road. Transportation officials are urging motorists to use caution and consider alternate routes to avoid delays.

Demolition on the Cameron Run bridge began Sunday night and will continue, every night, through Friday. Construction crews will demolish bridge piers, complete grading operations, and pave ramps.

Telegraph Road will be narrowed to one lane in both directions between Huntington Avenue and Pershing Avenue. Expect the Telegraph Road North ramps to both loops of the Beltway to be closed. The closures will remain in effect through Friday morning.
