Route 123 lanes closing

All northbound lanes of Route 123 near the Dulles Connector Road (Route 267) between McLean and Tysons Corner will be shut down for 14 hours beginning at 8 p.m. Friday for work on the Metrorail extension. The lanes will reopen by 10 a.m. Saturday.

All northbound through traffic from the Tysons Corner area toward McLean and the Chain Bridge will be detoured for less than a mile. Signs will direct drivers to turn right on Anderson Road, left on Chain Bridge Road, left on to Great Falls Street, then right on northbound Route 123.

The ramp leading from northbound Route 123, just north of Anderson Road, to eastbound I-66 via the Dulles Connector Road will remain open. In addition, the ramp from the eastbound Dulles Toll Road/Dulles Connector Road to northbound Route 123 will be open.

Residents of the communities along Anderson and Chain Bridge roads and Great Falls Street should be alert for additional traffic during the closing of northbound Route 123. Also, eastbound Dulles Toll Road/Dulles Connector Road drivers from Dulles Airport and the Reston area who use the southbound 123 exit ramp to cross Route 123 to Anderson Road/Chain Bridge Road will experience additional traffic on those roads.
