Fourth Time’s a Charm for Chain Bridge Closure?

Road crews will try again to perform reconstruction work on the deck of Chain Bridge this weekend. The work will completely close Chain Bridge to traffic and pedestrians from 8:00 p.m. Friday to 5:00 a.m. Monday.

This is the fourth attempt to perform the repair work. The first two scheduled closures were snowed out; this past weekend’s planned closure was rained out.

Motorists are asked to seek alternate routes across the Potomac this weekend. Possible detours include the American Legion, Key, Roosevelt, Memorial and 14th Street Bridges.
