Two-Year lane closing on for Dulles Metrorail starts Feb. 22 | Railway Track & Structures

The right lane of southbound Route 123 between Scotts Crossing Road and the I-495 Capital Beltway Inner Loop will close for approximately two years beginning on or about Monday, Feb. 22. The closing had been previously scheduled to begin on or about Feb. 8 but the recent snowstorms forced a delay.

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.
