If you plan to drive in I-295 in the District after dark, expect to encounter some lane closures and delays over the next few weeks.
The District Department of Transportation said it will be repaving a southbound stretch of the road between Exit 2 and Exit 1 (Malcolm X Avenue to Blue Plains).
This will force the closure of one lane between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m., Sundays through Thursday from now through July 2.
To bypass the potential delays, drivers can take the Capital Beltway, or exit at Suitland Parkway and take Martin Luther King Avenue SE.
