Weekend Construction Requires Full Closure of
Eastbound Dulles Access Highway
Saturday, Sept. 22, at 10 p.m. until Sunday, Sept. 23, at 6 a.m.
Beginning on or about Saturday, Sept. 22, at 10 p.m. and continuing through Sunday, Sept. 23, at 6 a.m., Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project (DCMP) crews will be performing overhead pedestrian bridge utility work along the eastbound Dulles Access Highway (DIAAH), requiring the full closure of the eastbound DIAAH from the start of Innovation Center Station at mile marker 1.7 to just east of Centreville Road at mile marker 2.7.
Traffic from the eastbound DIAAH will be diverted to the left lane of the eastbound Dulles Toll Road (DTR), then returned to the DIAAH once past the construction area. DIAAH drivers will not pass through any toll booths on the DTR during these detours (see map below and details on next page).
Figure 1: EB DIAAH traffic to be detoured to the left lane of the EB DTR for approximately one mile.

From Saturday night, Sept. 22, at 10 p.m. through early Sunday morning, Sept. 23, at 6 a.m.:
All work is weather dependent and subject to change.
Drivers are asked to use caution and pay attention to all signage and barricades. Large, slow-moving vehicles may be exiting and entering the highway at various times.
