Drivers, bikers and pedestrians — rejoice!
The Virginia Department of Transportation has begun major road paving within much of the Tysons area. Now through the end of September, VDOT is paving (weather permitting):
- International Drive from Route 123 to the Spring Hill Road/Jones Branch Drive intersection
- Spring Hill Road from the International Drive/Jones Branch Drive intersection to the Dulles Toll Road interchange
Drivers can expect daytime lane closures 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, as well as intermittent intersection detours. Police will direct traffic during intersection closures.
The work is part of VDOT Northern Virginia’s $168 million paving program this year all across the region. Additional paving projects are expected in other parts of Tysons through the end of this year.
