Friday: Permanent Lane Shift on Access Road
Metro construction near Wiehle means change for motorists.
Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project crews will implement the permanent shift of thru lanes on the eastbound Dulles International Airport Access highway near the Wiehle - Reston East Metrorail Station, now under construction in the median of the airport access highway/toll road corridor, overnight Friday, June 22 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.
The thru lanes between Wiehle - Reston East Station and about a half mile west of Wiehle Avenue Bridge will be shifted approximately 30 feet north towards the station.
The work will require alternating left and right lane closures throughout the night on the Airport Access Highway.
Police will be onsite during the shift, and will have lights on to make sure motorists slow down through the work area. Standard orange signage will be in place, indicating a left or right lane closure.
Delays are not anticipated during the lane closures; however, there is a possible 15- minute delay to change from left to right lane closures. Please use extreme caution when driving in this area.
