DULLES CORRIDOR METRORAIL PROJECT
Lane Closures Tonight on the Dulles Toll Road, Dulles International Airport Access Highway and Airport Roads – Tuesday, Dec. 15

Nighttime construction activities will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 15, causing lane closures on the Dulles Toll Road (DTR), Dulles International Airport Access Highway (DIAAH) and Autopilot Drive

Lane closures on the eastbound DIAAH as it leaves the airport will begin at 9 p.m.  From 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., traffic will be diverted to eastbound Aviation Drive, and then to the new ramp at the north end of Windsock Drive to access the eastbound DIAAH and the Dulles Toll Road.

Between 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., the northbound and southbound lanes of Autopilot Drive from the intersection with Materials Road to just south of the Dollar Thrifty entrance will be closed to allow work to continue on the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project Aerial Guideway. Detour signage, flaggers and police will be in place to guide local and through traffic to their destination. 

Please stay alert, obey all signage, and drive carefully. 

All work is weather dependent and subject to change.
