Update at 10:30 a.m. –VDOT has issued a correction, saying that the 400 block of Chain Bridge Road, not the bridge itself, will be closed.
Chain Bridge The 400 block of Chain Bridge Road will be closed for part of the day today.
Tree work will force the
bridge road to close from about 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., DDOT said on its Twitter account this morning. A VDOT official confirmed the closure.
“Our crews need to remove a tree that is in danger of falling into the roadway,” said VDOT spokeswoman Joan Morris. “The closure is from 9:30 a.m. till 2:30 p.m. We hope to reopen the road sooner than that if the removal goes well.”
The work brings back memories of last year’s bridge rehabilitation project, which forced the closure of the bridge on several occasions.
Morris says signs warning about today’s closure have been up for five days. A detour is posted, she said.
