Saturday, Sept. 16 at 10 p.m. through Sunday, Sept. 17 at 6 a.m.
On or about the weekend of Friday, Sept. 15 through Sunday, Sept. 17, detours and lane closures will impact traffic on the westbound Dulles Toll Road (DTR) and Dulles International Airport Access Highway (DIAAH). The detours will allow Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project crews to set pedestrian bridges that will provide access over the westbound highways to the Silver Line's Herndon Metrorail Station. See details below and on the next page.
Information about additional detours will be forthcoming as the work progresses through the upcoming months. All work is weather dependent and subject to change.
