SHA to Begin Resurfacing Project on Beltway and Seminary Road Overpass

Evening rush hour traffic from the Capital Beltway merging with I270.
 Beginning in mid-June, the State Highway Administration (SHA) will begin a year-long resurfacing project on a six-mile stretch of the inner loop of the Capital Beltway, between I-270 and the Seminary Road overpass just west of Georgia Avenue.

During the first phase of the project, crews will work overnight, every Sunday through Thursday night, closing one or two lanes to remove the existing asphalt starting at 9 p.m. and reopening lanes the following morning at 5 a.m. There will be occasional overnight closures on Friday and Saturday nights, as well.

During phase two of the project next spring, up to three lanes may be closed overnight.

The project also will include repairs to the Capital Beltway inner loop bridge decks over Connecticut Avenue and Kensington Parkway, replacement of guardrails and upgrades to stormwater management inlets and pipes.

More information is available on SHA’s website.
