Sunrise Valley Drive and Herndon-Monroe Park & Ride Roadway Improvement Work Begins Monday, Jan. 9, 2017
On or about Monday, Jan. 9, 2017, Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project crews will begin the preliminary work for roadway improvements on Sunrise Valley Drive near the Herndon-Monroe Park and Ride. The improvements are part of the Herndon Metrorail Station that is being built in the median of the Dulles Airport Access Highway/Dulles Toll Road corridor.
 
Initial activities will include installing erosion and sediment controls, clearing trees along westbound Sunrise Valley Drive and near the existing parking garage, utility relocations, widening the westbound lanes of Sunrise Valley Drive, and building a new West Entrance Road to the existing parking garage. Additional construction activities will follow, and continue through the end of 2018.
 
The work will require:
  • Lane closures on westbound Sunrise Valley Drive will occur between 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.
  • Closure of the sidewalk on the north (westbound) side of Sunrise Valley Drive between the Arboretum and Thunder Chase Drive. A temporary crosswalk at the intersection of Milburn Lane will be installed for safety, and pedestrians will be redirected to the sidewalk on the south (eastbound) side.
  • Narrowing of entrances to facilities along Sunrise Valley Drive for utility work.
Further updates will be provided as the work progresses. Drivers should exercise caution, pay attention to barrier and signage and obey all flagger instructions. 
 
All work is weather dependent and subject to change.
