Nighttime Detour of Copilot Way at Dulles International Airport Nov. 9 - 11 and Nov. 14 - 18, 7 p.m. to 3 a.m.
On or about Nov. 9 - 11 and Nov. 14 - 18, 2016, from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m., Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project crews will close the eastern portion of Copilot Way at Dulles International Airport in order to safely set girders over the road. With the exception of Garage Shuttle Buses, access to parking Garage 1 and Garage 2 from Saarinen Circle will be closed while work is underway. Garage shuttle buses will be diverted around the work area as needed for safety. All other vehicles will use Aviation Drive and Cargo Drive as follows:
- Access to Garage 1: Use main entrance located on Aviation Dr.
- Access to Garage 2: Take Aviation Dr. to Cargo Dr. to the Copilot Way or Cargo Dr. entrances.
Traffic shifts on Copilot Way will occur on subsequent nights while construction of the aerial guideway deck is ongoing through the fall and winter months.
Drivers should exercise caution, pay attention to barrier and signage and obey all flagger instructions.
All work is weather dependent and subject to change.
