Headaches on the horizon
There's a chance travelers will encounter rain Monday night as a cool front moves through and brings in somewhat drier air. Drivers in Tysons Corner will encounter one new delay overnight as part of the Dulles Metrorail project.
Dulles Metrorail extension
Workers are assembling the second huge truss that will be used to construct the aerial guideway on one of the piers at the Capital Beltway/Route 123. The first truss is in the median of the Dulles Connector Road. The trusses take prefabricated sections of steel and concrete, and hoist them into place along the route of the Metrorail extension.
Starting Monday night, two ramps at the Beltway/Route 123 interchange will close between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. each night through Saturday for the assembly work. Later this month, overnight closings are scheduled to begin on westbound Interstate 66 at the Dulles Connector Road (Route 267) split.
The closings, between midnight and 5 a.m., will occur over a five-week period, but the exact dates haven't been set. All the lanes will reopen in time for the morning rush, but during the closing hours, there will be extensive traffic detours.
