I-495 Southbound Lane Closures Next Three Weekends in Tysons
Lane closures for joint work on bridges over the Dulles Toll Road completed early

Update: The work requiring these lane closures was completed ahead of schedule during the weekend of Oct. 22-25, therefore the lane closures scheduled for the weekend of Oct. 29-Nov. 1 have been cancelled.

TYSONS – During the next three weekends, weather permitting, the left lane of the southbound I-495 (Capital Beltway Outer Loop) general purpose lanes will be closed along the three bridges over the Dulles Toll Road (Route 267) from 10 p.m. Fridays to 5 a.m. Mondays for bridge joint work, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

During the weekends of Oct. 15-18, Oct. 22-25 and Oct. 29-Nov. 1, the two left lanes of the southbound I-495 general purpose lanes are scheduled to be closed overnight as follows:
