Dulles Metrorail Route 7 service roads to disappear this fall

Written by jrood

Traffic patterns will change permanently between Route 123 and the Dulles Toll Road. Major lane shifts in Virginia are expected this fall between Tyco and Spring Hill Roads and between Westpark Drive/Gosnell Roads and Route 123 where the Tysons West and Tysons Central 7 Stations will be built. Service roads along the east and westbound lanes of Route 7 will disappear.  

Construction is set to begin
on the Tysons East Station at the northwest corner of Route 123 and Scotts
Crossing Road causing the loss of two of the four lanes on Scotts Crossing
for three years. This site is adjacent to Capital One. Work will begin on
the 2,400-foot tunnel that will carry the rail line from the northwest side of
Route 123, under the Route 7/Route 123 interchange, to the median of Route
7 near the former Merchant’s Tire building and the Marshalls (Tysons Square
Shopping Center).

On the Dulles Connector
Road, pile driving will continue east from Route 123 to the I-66 interchange.
New bridges will be built near Magarity and Idylwood Roads and at Pimmit
Run. Equipment staging and lane closings continue from Route 123 east to

On the Dulles International
Airport Access Highway, clearing and grading from Reston Parkway eastward to Route
7 in the median of the DIAAH continues. Caissons and preliminary foundation
work for the Wiehle Avenue Metrorail Station east of Wiehle Avenue in the median
of the DIAAH continue.
