Rock Creek Parkway Open

After almost a week of being shut down, most of Rock Creek Parkway and Beach Drive are now open.

Most of Beach Drive and Rock Creek Parkway through Rock Creek Parkre-opened Friday after being closed for several days because of fallentrees and mud from the recent storms, according to U.S. Park Police.

Approximatelyone mile of Beach Drive between Joyce and Broad Branch roads willremain closed for some time because of "serious structural damage tothe roadway", said Sgt. Scott Fear, a spokesman for the Park Police."It doesn't affect traffic too much," Fear said. "You can go up GloverDrive and go around it."
