The closing is necessary for construction of the Tysons East Metrorail Station, one of four rail stations to be built in Tysons Corner by the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project. The station will be on the northwest side of Dolley Madison Boulevard (Route 123) and Capital One Drive.
The closed lane will provide a safe workspace for crews working on station construction. Capital One employees, vendors and visitors will still have right-turn lane access to the property's main entrance via a shorter right-turn lane. Both entrance ramps to the Capital Beltway in this area will remain open.
Other construction work is taking place at other locations along Route 123 in Tysons Corner and drivers are cautioned to be extremely careful and to watch for signs and other alerts.
