Va. Beltway closings scheduled
The scheduled Installation of steel bridge beams for Virginia's HOT lanes project will practically shut the Capital Beltway in Tysons Corner very early Thursday and Friday mornings.
All four lanes of I-495 south (the outer loop) and three lanes on I-495 north (the inner loop) are scheduled to close at Leesburg Pike (Route 7). The first closing is set for midnight to 5:30 a.m. Thursday. This is a half hour later in the morning than the normal completion time for overnight work. The lane blockages could affect some early morning commuters on Thursday.
The work will close the same lanes the next night, but the hours will be different: 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. Friday.
Detour: During both closings, southbound drivers on the outer loop will be directed onto the Exit 47A ramp to Route 7 west. They will cross over to Route 7 east, then go back to I-495 south.
