Work to replace a culvert along Valley Wood Road in McLean will prompt an all-week detour along the Arlington-McLean border next week.
VDOT crews will be performing the work during the day Monday through Friday, weather permitting.
More from VDOT:
Valley Wood Road/37th Street North between North Kensington Street and Vermont Avenue will be closed to through traffic (weather permitting) Monday, Oct. 1 through Friday, Oct. 5 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day for culvert replacement, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.
Residents within the closure area, emergency vehicles and school buses will have access to the closed portion of Valley Wood Road/37th Street North; however, they will not be able to go beyond the point of culvert replacement in either direction.
Traffic will be detoured via North Kensington Street, Rhode Island Avenue, Massachusetts Avenue and Vermont Avenue back to Valley Wood Road/37th Street North.
Arlington County’s sometimes snarky Dept. of Environmental Services Twitter account also posted about the detour today.
Despite radically different cultures and conventions, Arlington and McLean residents will share a detour next week as the state replaces a culvert along what we call 37th St N – what McLeanites call Valley Wood Road. https://t.co/Ee5DnoeCFZ #VaTraffic pic.twitter.com/NL3vguboHH
