If you use the George Washington Parkway to get around, some things are happening as soon as this weekend that will affect your ride. Here’s what you need to know.
The parkway’s northbound lanes between the Spout Run Parkway and Chain Bridge Road will be closed on Sunday between 6 a.m. and 4 p.m., as crews work to remove a car that slid off the road and down to the Potomac River during a snowstorm more than a year ago. The parkway’s southbound lanes will be unaffected.
As the vehicle is removed, a section of the Potomac Heritage hiking trail will also be closed for up to 30 minutes at a time.
