Watch for changes on Route 28 near Dulles
The new interchange at Route 28 and Frying Pan Road is scheduled to be completely open to traffic by Monday, the Virginia Department of Transportation says. The entire Route 28 project, years in the making, is now in its final phase of widenings and interchange improvements.
This will represent one of the most significant road improvements in the region during the decade.
But for now, just worry about staying alert through the Frying Pan Road interchange for various lane closures and flagging operations in anticipation of the full opening. This redirection of traffic should continue through 6 a.m. Thursday. Then starting Thursday, traffic on westbound Frying Pan Road will reach southbound Route 28 by the new interchange ramp.
Also, from after this evening's rush hour through noon Monday, westbound Frying Pan Road traffic heading toward northbound Route 28 will be detoured to the Air & Space Parkway interchange and then back to Route 28. When the detour is lifted on Monday morning, the $24.6 million interchange will be completely open.
