Beginning on or about Sunday, Oct. 13 and continuing until Saturday, Oct. 26, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night, Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project crews will be performing overhead pier work along the east and westbound Dulles International Airport Access Highway (DIAAH), requiring the closure of multiple lanes in each direction and the detour of traffic onto the Aviation Drive ramps as shown in the graphic below.
