Lane closures expected to last through the summer; two full-service and three E-ZPass lanes remain open
Beginning on Wednesday, July 17, construction will continue along the eastbound Dulles Toll Road impacting the Main Toll Plaza. As a result, two center lanes will be closed for several consecutive weeks and occasional traffic congestion is expected.
During the closures, two full-service lanes on the right, two E-ZPass lanes on the left and one E-ZPass lane on the right will remain open eastbound. Please see below for more detailed information.
Customers should follow new directional signage and be prepared for delays during high-volume travel times. All work is weather dependent and subject to change.
Dulles Toll Road Eastbound
When: Wednesday, July 17, 2019
What: Multi-Lane Shutdown
Where: Main Toll Plaza, between Exits 16 and 17
Toll Lane: Two center lanes (lanes 3 and 4)
Why: Installation of new toll collection system
To mitigate the traffic impacts, motorists are encouraged to:
- Have exact change ready if using the full-service lanes.
- Adjust your morning commute by arriving at the main toll plaza before 8:00 a.m. or after 10:00 a.m.
- Please be patient. We are working to provide a minimally disruptive driving experience and a safe construction zone for workers.
Following the two initial lane closures, an announcement will be made on lane closures for lanes 1, 2 and 3 later this summer.
Please drive carefully! Drivers are asked to use caution and pay attention to all signage, police direction and barricades. Lane shutdowns will alternate throughout the project, impacting traffic seven days a week, 24-hours per day. Delays are expected.
