About the Project
This project will construct sound walls on both sides of the Dulles Connector Road/Route 267, between Chain Bridge Road and Interstate 66 (3.96 miles) in Fairfax County. The sound walls will be built to mitigate noise from the Dulles Connector Road traffic and Dulles Metrorail, which is being constructed at-grade in the median and on elevated rail flyovers along the Dulles Connector Road.
This project will construct sound walls as required by Chapter 874 Virginia Acts of Assembly 2010:
"pursuant to the provisions of the Memorandum of Agreement between the Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Transportation and the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, in conjunction with the construction of rail mass transit in the right of way of the Dulles Access/Toll Road Connector (DATRC), sound walls shall be constructed along residential properties from the beginning of the DATRC to Interstate Route 66 with funding from the Commonwealth Transportation Fund."
Construction is scheduled to begin in late summer/early fall 2013 and will be within the existing right of way.
When construction begins in late summer/early fall, drivers can expect single-lane closures at night in both directions on the Connector Road. Closures may be in place 9:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sundays-Thursdays and 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Friday-Saturday nights. There may also be shoulder closures during the day, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. northbound and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. southbound.
Some intermittent 20-minute road closures may also be in place from midnight to 5 a.m. Message signs will be in place to alert drivers.
