Rock Creek Parkway and Beach Drive from the Taft Bridge.

Over the next three years, segments of Beach Drive — a historic artery that connects Maryland and upper Northwest D.C. neighborhoods to downtown — will shut down for repairs. The four-part closure will reroute commuters to congested north-south corridors, slamming drivers already negotiating disruptions on Metro. Kojo explores the citywide impact of the closure, why it’s needed now, and how commuters can cope.
