Beginning at 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, all southbound lanes of the Capital Beltway bridge over Route 123 in Tysons Corner will shift onto a new adjacent bridge. The shift will be in place by 5 a.m. Thursday. As a result, exit ramps to Route 123 north and south have been realigned. The segment of Route 123 under the Beltway will be closed one weekend this month to demolish the old bridge.

A Maryland driver who lives near the Wilson Bridge wanted to know the best route to Dulles Airport. He was thinking about all the construction along the Capital Beltway in Virginia. I said that since it was a daytime trip, I'd stick with Wilson Bridge, around the Beltway and out the Dulles Access Road. But I invited your suggestions. Here's one.

Dulles Metrorail construction is scheduled to temporarily shut Route 267 several times overnight.
One agency is building the Metrorail extension to Dulles and another agency will have to operate it. Have they been talking much to each other?
