REMINDER: Dulles Connector Road Lane Shift Continues
 
 
A lane shift that began late last month along the eastbound Dulles Connector Road (DCR), which connects the Dulles Toll Road to Interstate 66, will continue through next week and beyond.
 
Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project crews plan to improve the left shoulder of the eastbound DCR. The improvements require the closure of the DCR’s left lane from Chain Bridge Road to I-66 for several months; traffic will use the right-hand bus lane. As work progresses in future weeks, additional non-peak lane closures will occur; work-specific alerts will be issued regularly.
 
The Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project is making these enhancements at the request of the Virginia Department of Transportation as part of the Silver Line Phase 1 project. Please see detailed information below.
 
Dulles Connector Road (Route 267) – East
 
When: Monday, May 2 through Friday, May 6, 9:30 p.m. - 5 a.m.
What:  Single left lane closure
Where: From 1500 feet before Dolley Madison Boulevard to 450 feet before Magarity Road
Why:  Install temporary signage and concrete barriers
 
When: Monday, May 2 through Friday, May 6, 9:30 p.m. - 5 a.m.
What:  Single left lane closure
Where: From Chain Bridge Road to 2400 feet after Magarity Road

All work is weather dependent and subject to change.
 
Barriers and signs will be used to help direct traffic and minimize impacts. Police will be on hand, as needed, to assist with traffic management. Drivers should use extreme caution in the areas and allow extra time to travel in these areas.
