Original post: Travelers on the eastbound Dulles Toll Road should expect major delays Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, according to the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which operates the route.
The two right lanes on the eastbound Dulles Toll Road are closed near the Beulah Road overpass. According to airports spokeswoman Courtney Mickalonis the bridge was damaged Tuesday afternoon when it was struck by a truck transporting a backhoe. The Beulah Road Bridge and the Dulles Toll Road lanes will remain closed until the bridge is repaired, she said.
The two left lanes on the eastbound Dulles Toll Road and all of the westbound lanes are open but officials expect massive delays.
