Big Beltway detour in Tysons overnight Friday
If you're out late Friday night, watch for Beltway traffic congestion in Tysons Corner. The exit ramp from the Beltway's outer loop to southbound Chain Bridge Road (Route 123) will close from midnight to 5 a.m. Saturday for work on the Dulles Metrorail project.
Drivers on the outer loop will do some fancy looping if they want to reach southbound Chain Bridge Road. This is their detour:
-- Take the exit to northbound Chain Bridge Road (Route 123) toward McLean
-- Remain on the exit ramp and use the on-ramp to northbound I-495 (the inner loop)
-- From northbound I-495, take the exit to southbound Chain Bridge Road.
Meanwhile, drivers on eastbound I-66 will encounter lane closures near the Dulles Connector Road (Route 267) interchange Friday night and Saturday morning.
Construction crews will make a slight shift in the lanes of I-66 eastbound from just west of the Dulles Connector Road interchange to Great Falls Street. Here's the timing:
-- Between 10:30 p.m. and 5 a.m., the right and center through lanes will be closed.
-- Between 5 a.m. and 9 a.m. Saturday, crews will reopen those lanes and close the left through lane to complete the lane shift.
Here's a map showing the fancy looping.
