UPDATE: Realignment of Old Meadow Road
at Route 123 in Tysons
Lane Shift Expected in Early October
As the realignment of Old Meadow Road with Capital One Tower Drive at Dolley Madison Boulevard (Route 123), near the Capital Beltway in Tysons continues, motorists can expect to see the travel lanes shift around the night of Oct. 5 as work moves from the south side of Old Meadow Road to the median area.
The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority's Silver Line project is overseeing the work which subcontractor W.M. Schlosser is performing. The Virginia Department of Transportation and Fairfax County requested the realignment to facilitate traffic crossing Route 123 from the Capital One complex to Old Meadow Road. The change is needed because of impacts caused by Silver Line construction near McLean Station.
The first phase of work included sidewalk and pavement demolition as well as excavation and grading, and new concrete and asphalt work. They will finish with the asphalt and landscaping along the south side of Old Meadow Road and the east side of Dolley Madison Boulevard to complete this first phase of the work.
When the next phase of work begins around the night of Oct. 5, crews will finish the construction of a new median along Old Meadow Road at the intersection. The work will require a southward lane shift of eastbound Old Meadow Road. Motorists should be cautious when turning right along Old Meadow Road because the slope of the road has changed.
