New Traffic Patterns in Tyson’s Corner Post Labor Day
News, Transportation

Starting today, September 7, there are new traffic patterns in different areas of Route 7 in Tyson’s Corner due to the construction of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project. The day after Labor Day means summer vacations coming to an end and schools reopening; it also means a heavy day for traffic. Drivers are encouraged to drive extremely carefully due to the rail project zones and new traffic patterns.

Here are some various traffic pattern changes:

·         The east bound lanes have shifted 40 to 60 feet to the right.

·         Drivers exiting the Dulles Toll Road and the Dulles Airport Access Highway onto Route 7 will experience lane shifts that were completed just before Labor Day weekend.

·         All mid-block left turns have been eliminated.Left turns are now permitted only at the signalized intersections at Spring Hill Road, Gosnell Road/Westpark Drive and Tyco Road/Westwood Center Drive.

·         Some familiar turning patterns at interchanges have been altered.

·         There is no longer a traffic signal at the bottom ramp from southbound Route 123 to Route 7, so drivers  need to use extra caution when turning right

·         Drivers leaving the Marshalls shopping center area can only make right (eastbound) turns.  In order to access westbound Route 7, drivers must  turn right onto southbound Route 123 , right onto Old Courthouse (which becomes Gosnell Road), and then left at the light onto westbound Route 7.

·         The intersection of Route 123 and Tysons Boulevard has changed.

·         Rail construction is underway all along Route 123 from the Dulles Connector Road to International Drive.
