Metrorail Construction Now on Dulles Access Road
Construction of the Metrorail extension through Tysons is now reaching out to the western part of the route, along the Dulles Access Road. Drivers can see the early stages of the work between the Access Road and the Toll Road from Hunter Mill Road to the Reston Parkway.
This phase involves relocation of the utilities along the route, clearing of trees and brush and preparation for construction of the Wiehle Avenue station, on the west side of the avenue. That's the end point for phase 1 of the project, which in phase 2 will stretch to Dulles Airport and into Loudoun County. Work on the station's foundation will begin later this year.
The work in Tysons along Routes 123 and 7 is much more difficult, because of the terrain, streets and buildings. The Access Road part is relatively easy. Still, there may be some lane closings out that way as the work progresses.
