Drivers and cyclists in the Courthouse/Clarendon area should expect a bumpy ride on Wilson Boulevard over the next couple of days. Wilson has been milled between North Barton Street and North Fillmore Street ahead of a scheduled repaving.

The repaving is expected to begin on Thursday, depending on weather conditions and logistical issues.

Later this week, another stretch of Wilson Boulevard — from North Highland Street to Washington Boulevard, near the Clarendon Metro Station — is scheduled to be milled, with repaving to follow. Next week the same work will take place on Washington Boulevard from Pershing Drive to North Highland Street, according to Department of Environmental Services spokesperson Karen Acar.

Drivers should expect parking restriction in the area during the construction.

    How wide are the bike lanes going to be and how many automobile travel lanes are they going to remove?

      Steph, I’m still hoping that you’ll let me know where those “8 foot” bike lanes on Quincy are located. Because I’m sure you wouldn’t be making them up . . .

      The striping on the repaved surface will match the previously existing striping. Except, you know, not completely worn out.

        I have my tape measure and camera ready. I’ll have pics within a few days.

    Guess folks in Courthouse/Clarendon/Ballston are the only ones that matter enough to get these kinds of things mentioned. Things like this have been going on all over the county in North Arlington and Rossyln for months.

    Finally a reason for drivers to drive slow through there! I call it A-Hole Alley because no one will drive over 20mph even though most of Wilson and Clarendon Blvd are 30mph zones. They look like they are constantly slowing down to find a parking space but no they will drive from Ballston to Rosslyn at that pace!

      I’m pretty sure most, if not all of Wilson from Ballston to Rosslyn is 25 mph. It

    • With the amount of pedestrians and such on the Blvd’s, I’m glad drivers are going 20 mph. And it’s clear sailing once you get past the Whole Foods on the way down to Rosslyn.
