The northbound GW Parkway has been shut down at the Spout Run Parkway due to falling rocks in the roadway. From the county’s Office of Emergency Management:

George Washington Parkway Northbound past Spout Run Parkway, Arlington Co. VA has been closed until atleast 10 PM due to debris in Roadway (Falling rocks)

All northbound travel lanes are blocked.  Traffic is being diverted onto Spout Run Parkway to I-66 Westbound.  Delays begin near the Roosevelt Bridge, approximately 1.5 miles.  Drivers should avoid this area and take alternate routes.

    Am I looking at trouble heading into DC – and then back via TR Bridge and US50 to Arlington?

    • BrownFlipFlops

      I would avoid the TR on the way back. I was just there, and it was a mess.
