Nighttime Work on Leesburg Pike Begins Aug. 5

Drivers in the Tysons Corner area can expect major delays beginning the week of Aug. 5 as the Dulles Corridor Metrorail project will begin pavement restoration along Leesburg Pike (Route 7), east and west, between the Dulles Toll Road and Route 123.

Most of the work will be done at night to minimize impacts on traffic. Paving along the eastbound lanes will start Aug. 5 and end in early September. Paving along the westbound lanes will begin on or about Aug. 9 and continue into late September.

Pavement restoration is a two-step process that requires removing old asphalt (milling) and replacing it with new (paving). Motorists should be aware that the milling process will create a rough roadway surface when the lanes are reopened to accommodate traffic during the day.

Dates and times may change and work is always weather dependent.

For construction-related emergencies including noise, use the project HOTLINE at 877-585-6789. For further information about the project, visit www.dullesmetro.com or call 703-572-0506.
