Ramp Closure

The ramp closure will allow work on the future Express Lanes reversible flyover ramp.

The on-ramp from Alban Road (Route 790)/Boudinot Drive/Backlick Road (Route 617) near the Fairfax County Parkway to I-95 south closed permanently to traffic looking to access the general purpose lanes.

This closure allows work on the future Express Lanes reversible flyover ramp. It also provides a safe work zone for the traveling public and construction crews. The ramp will be closed until late 2014, when it reopens as a new reversible High Occupancy Vehicle/Express Lanes ramp.

Over the next few months, crews will continue to clear the area of trees and brush, start drainage and grading work, and bridge pier and retaining wall construction. Crews will extend the far left turn lane and re-stripe the center lane as a shared left turn and through lane from Alban Road onto Boudinot Drive. Signal timing will also be adjusted.
