don't leave Rosslyn

As of early Saturday afternoon, Rt. 50 westbound is closed at Rosslyn.  Cars are stacked up on Rt. 50 westbound, waiting to exit back into Rosslyn.  These drivers clearly haven't been reading a leading local news source.  Rt. 50 westbound, heading away from Rosslyn, will be closed today and tomorrow for the demolition of the Courthouse Rd. bridge.

While lacking one big explosion, the demolition of the bridge is nonetheless exciting.  Many big dumptrucks are at the site.  You can see a massive backhoe shoveling up pieces of broken concrete.  Another massive tool features a huge, rigid rod, pounding into the bridge.  Most persons probably have never seen something like that.
