Westbound Dulles Access Highway Traffic to be detoured for Pedestrian Bridge Utility Work
Friday, Feb. 22, 10 p.m. through Saturday, Feb. 23, 5 a.m.
Beginning on or about Friday, Feb. 22 at 10 p.m. and continuing until Saturday, Feb. 23 at 5 a.m., Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project (DCMP) crews will be performing utility work at the pedestrian bridges of Reston, Innovation and Herndon Station, requiring the full closure of a portion of the westbound Dulles International Airport Access Highway (DIAAH).
At mile marker 9.1, traffic will be redirected to the left lane of the westbound Dulles Toll Road (DTR) from the Dulles International Airport Access Highway (DIAAH). There will be a second left DTR lane closed as a buffer. At mile marker 1.8, near the Route 28 toll plaza, traffic will be able to re-enter the DIAAH towards the airport. The ramps to the westbound DIAAH at mile marker 8.3 and 3.3 will be closed. See graphics below
All work is weather dependent and subject to change.
Signs and barrels will be used to help direct traffic and minimize impacts. Drivers should use extreme caution in the areas and allow extra time to travel in these areas.
