Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project - Phase 2
NO Overnight Lane Closures Scheduled for Monday, Jan. 22
The Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project does not have any lane or road closures scheduled for tonight, Monday, Jan. 22.  However, construction work continues all along the Phase 2 Silver Line alignment, so please continue to drive safely!
Construction of the 2nd phase of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Silver Line Project is progressing rapidly within and adjacent to the Dulles Toll Road, Dulles Access Highway, Dulles Greenway, and associated secondary roadways all along the 11.4 mile alignment that stretches from Reston to Ashburn, Virginia.  Hundreds of construction related vehicles and thousands of private and other commercial vehicles must safely share these roads every day. 
The project carefully complies with all Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) policies and regulations and all work is coordinated with and approved by the organizations responsible for the affected roadways, including the Virginia Department of Transportation, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, and the Dulles Greenway management
WE NEED YOUR HELP!  PLEASE remain alert to changing conditions, expect the unexpected, watch for slow moving vehicles and heavy construction equipment, and obey all signage.  The VDOT provides the following "rules of the road" when approaching a work zone:
  • Drive at the posted speed limit. The fine for speeding in a work zone can be $500.
  • Proceed with extreme caution. Expect anything in construction sites.
  • Be aware - especially of construction vehicles moving in and out of work zones.
  • Obey signs, channelizing devices and pavement markings. They will guide you through the work zones.
  • Leave plenty of room between your vehicle and others around you. Unexpected stops frequently occur in work zones.
  • Watch for flaggers. Their direction will get you safely through the work zones.
  • Look for changes. A work zone might have changed since your last trip.
  • Please watch out for highway workers. Each person is somebody's loved one. 
Any activity that has the potential to affect traffic is announced, in advance of the work, to the public and the media in regular bulletins, including weekly forecasts.  To receive that information via email, please sign up at regularly check the project website:
