Last Commute on Oak St. Bridge
Damn "HOT Lane" construction on I495 in Northern VA. I had a sweet route from Annandale to Tysons Corner that took me across the Oak St. Bridge overpass over I495. 2 lanes, not too much local or cut-through traffic.
They're tearing it down for HOT Lane work starting May 10th. They've had the detour signs up for a week or so now, but it's finally going to be shut down.
Now I have to follow the W&OD down to Sandburg and then come in that way. It's only about .3 miles longer, but it's the principle
New bridge supposed to be open in 2010. We'll see.
