Headaches on the horizon

Dulles Metrorail construction: Lane closure scheduled for tonight on the Dulles Toll Road (route 267) has been canceled.

I-95 Widening: Three miles south of the Fairfax County Parkway exit (Exit 166), VDOT is closing several lanes on southbound I-95 to allow workers room to hang steel beams for the additional lane over Pohick Creek, one half mile north of the Lorton Road exit (Exit 163). One right lane of southbound I-95 will be closed at 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, followed by another at 10:30 p.m. The lanes will reopen by 5 a.m.

Overnight, one southbound lane will remain open to all traffic. The HOV lanes will remain open to southbound traffic until 1:30 a.m. (They normally close to southbound traffic at midnight.)

Beltway HOT lanes: Capital Beltway Exit 57) from I-495 south (outer loop) to I-395 North will be closed from 9:30 p.m. to 5 o'clock Thursday morning so workers can install steel beams for a new bridge at the Springfield interchange.

Detour: From I-495 South, exit onto I-95 South, to Exit 166A, the Newington-Fairfax County Parkway (Route 7100). Follow signs around the exit ramps back to I-95 North and continue onto I-395 North. This will probably add 10 to 15 minutes to your trip.

Ramp closing at 9th Street SW Bridge
A ramp that connects the southbound 9th Street Tunnel with southbound I-395 will be closed temporarily overnight through Friday, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night. Alternative route: Continue straight across the 9th Street Bridge to Maine Avenue, make a right turn and then take the left exit for I-395 South. Watch for signs marking this detour.
