Traffic Changes Made on Route 7 in Tysons Corner

Permanent changes to traffic patterns have been made on Route 7 in Tysons Corner to allow for construction of a Tysons Central Metrorail station that will serve the Dulles Metrorail Project.

The changes are at the intersection of Route 7, Marshalls Drive (the road leading to the Marshalls store) and the frontage road. Traffic from Marshalls Drive and the frontage road onto Route 7 is now only allowed to turn right. Drivers may not turn from Marshalls Drive to westbound Route 7, nor from the frontage road to eastbound Route 7. Additionally, drivers on Marshalls Drive or the frontage road may not cross Route 7.

Tysons Central station construction is scheduled to end in 2013.

When you say frontage road do you mean the service road? So people on the service road can't turn right and head onto Rt. 7 East? If people leaving the Marshall's Shopping center can turn right onto Rt. 7 East why can't the service road cars?
