Lynn Street to Get Its Stripes… Starting Tuesday

(Updated at 6:30 p.m.) For the past couple of weeks, drivers heading north on Lynn Street from Route 50 have had to guess what constitutes a lane on the large expanse of newly-paved but unmarked asphalt.

But Rosslyn’s vehicular Wild West is about to be tamed. Lane markings are set to be installed starting on Tuesday night, according to Wayne Wentz, the county’s transportation engineering chief. The work is expected to wrap up “by the end of the week.”

Why wasn’t it done earlier? Wentz told TBD the road was repaved before a lane striping plan was in place due to “a scheduling challenge.”

In an earlier version of this article, another county official erroneously said the work was to begin Saturday.
