Emergency Repairs On Wilson Bridge Could Cause More Traffic

Play associated audio

Emergency repairs on the Woodrow Wilson Bridge will take place this weekend as potholes are being repaired.

The I-95 South/Beltway Inner Loop will narrow down to one lane and won’t open back up until Monday morning at 5 a.m.

Dara Ward is with the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Project and says traffic could get very backed up as a result of these emergency repairs.

"We do have some traffic modeling that indicates that if only 40 percent of weekend travelers avoid the area, backups could reach ten to 15 miles and delays could actually extend to an hour and a half."

Ward is advising motorists to consider alternate routes.
