Emergency repairs on The Woodrow Wilson Bridge are taking place this weekend as potholes are being repaired.
The I-95 South/Beltway Inner Loop is narrowed down to one lane and won’t open back up until Monday morning at 5 a.m.
Dara Ward, who is with the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Project, is advising people to stay away from that area.
"We’re advising folks to stay away from that area of the Beltway if you need to come into Virginia from Maryland," she says. "Instead of coming down and crossing the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, we would advise you to go that other way around the Beltway and take the American Legion Bridge to avoid that one lane."
Officials say traffic backups could reach as far as ten to 15 miles and delays could extend up to an hour and a half.
