Important Lane and Ramp Closures for the
Week of April 29 - May 5
 
Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project crews continue construction activities for the Metrorail Silver Line, Phase 2, including lane, shoulder, and/or road closures and detours at locations along the Dulles Toll Road (DTR), Dulles International Airport Access Highway (DIAAH), the Aviation Drive Bridge at Dulles Airport, Dulles Greenway, Reston Parkway, and Herndon Parkway during the week of April 29 - May 5.
 
SPECIAL NOTICES:
 
Dulles Access Highway and Dulles Toll Road East: Construction activities at the Innovation, Herndon and Reston Metrorail Stations will begin at the end of the week and will require nighttime closures on the eastbound Dulles Access Highway. During the closures traffic will be detoured onto the eastbound Dulles Toll Road around the construction and then return to the DIAAH.
 
Dulles Greenway East to Dulles Toll Road: On Monday night, overhead work on the Pedestrian Bridge on the south side of Innovation Station will require traffic from the Dulles Greenway that is headed to the Dulles Toll Road (Route 267) to merge into a single right lane and pass through the right lane of the Main Toll Plaza where they will be directed to exit onto Route 28 southbound and then enter the Dulles Toll Road from there.
 
See below for more specific dates, times and details and remember that all work is weather permitting.
 
PLEASE USE CAUTION and remain attentive to all signage, barricades and speed limits, and obey all police and flagger instructions. Slow-moving vehicles and equipment may be entering and exiting the highways and surrounding roads.
