Morning Notes

Roosevelt Bridge Work Still Going On — “It looks like motorists will have to wait a bit longer for the Theodore Roosevelt Bridge to be reopened fully to traffic, after emergency work was ordered on the bridge between D.C. and Arlington. Everett Lott, director of D.C.’s Department of Transportation, said several things led to the work not meeting its targeted September completion.” [WTOP]

Smoke at Courthouse Station — “On 11/7 at 8:04pm the ACFD was dispatched for a report of smoke in the tunnel at Courthouse Metro. Crews arrived & found a light haze of smoke that was quickly dissipating. ACFD was unable to locate a source and the smoke was gone from the tunnel so units cleared the scene.” [Twitter, Twitter]

D.C. Residents Coming to Va. to Bet — “While mobile sports gambling is legal in the District, many D.C. players find themselves drawn to Virginia and its far more robust options, mostly because of frustration with the D.C. operation. They pull their cars to the side of Virginia roads, schedule visits to suburban friends, study college football lines before a trip to the airport — all for what they consider an easier and more enjoyable gambling experience.” [Washington Post]

It’s Wednesday — Clear throughout the day. High of 56 and low of 40. Sunrise at 6:46 am and sunset at 5:01 pm. []
