Alexandria: Telegraph Road Closure this Weekend 7/27

If you’ve driven around the Kingstowne area in past couple of days, in particular Beulah Street and Telegraph Road, you may have seen the signs up announcing the closure of Telegraph Road. The closure will take place at Piney Run Drive, starting at 10 PM Friday 7/27 and ending 5 AM Monday 7/30. Hilltop Golf Club will still be open, but there will be detours in place for everyone else. This will definitely affect some of the neighborhoods nearby, such as Alden Hill and Ashby Heights. I am sure there will be a work around for residents living near the construction site. Telegraph Road will be closed so crews can install a sewer line; this work is in conjunction with the construction of Mulligan Road, which will connect Route 1 to Telegraph Road.

Due to a separate construction zone, additional areas of Telegraph Road will be closed in Alexandria. This relates to the continued Woodrow Wilson Bridge Project. Telegraph Road north and south will be completely shut down between the Beltway and Duke Street from 9 PM Friday 7/27 until 5M Monday 7/30. Both the eastbound and westbound ramps from Duke Street to Telegraph Road will be closed. You can always check out www.WilsonBridge.com for the latest updates.

Hope you have a great weekend and avoid Telegraph Road!
