Overnight Lane Closures and Detours on Eastbound DIAAH at Dulles International Airport:
Nov. 20 - Nov. 23 and Ongoing
On or about Friday, Nov. 20 through Monday, Nov. 23 after 9 p.m., the eastbound Dulles International Airport Access Highway (DIAAH) between mile markers 0.0 and 0.4 at Dulles International Airport will be reduced to one or two right lanes. Between midnight and 5 a.m., the eastbound DIAAH will be detoured to eastbound Aviation Drive and the new ramp at the north end of Windsock Drive. Police and flaggers will be in place to direct traffic as needed.
The closures are necessary to allow Silver Line construction over portions of the eastbound side of the DIAAH.
Lane closures between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. and occasional detours between midnight and 5 a.m. of the eastbound DIAAH will be utilized as needed Monday through Saturday, weather permitting, starting Nov. 30, 2015 and continuing into the spring months.
Drivers should exercise caution, pay attention to barrier and signage, and obey all police and flagger instructions.
