Echols Street SE is closed to traffic until July 9 for road resurfacing and some drainage, curbing and sidewalks. This work will take place in the block where Wolftrap Creek passes under near Branch Road.
Although the activities are not within the Westbriar boundaries, Echols is the route of choice to get to the Giant store from Zones A and B.
Echols Street is also a favorite of knowledgeable commuters avoiding 123 during morning and evening rush hours. The closure will probably cause noticeably worse congestion there until the job is done.
