Dulles Toll Road, Dulles Airport Access Highway to Temporarily Close Four Times Starting at Midnight Tonight

During the late night hours of tonight, Wednesday, April 21, and the early morning hours tomorrow, Thursday, April 22, all eastbound and westbound lanes of the Dulles Toll Road and the Dulles International Airport Access Highway will be temporarily closed four separate times between midnight and 2:45 a.m. This will take place just east of the Hunter Mill Road interchange.

At 11 p.m. tonight, Wednesday, April 21, Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority police will begin setting barriers and tapering off the lanes leading to the full closures. Traffic will be stopped in 15-minute segments between midnight and 2:45 a.m., then all of the lanes will be reopened.

The closing of the Airport Access Highway and the Toll Road will affect both the westbound off-ramp and the eastbound on-ramp from Hunter Mill Road. The closings will allow Dominion Virginia Power to relocate power lines needed for the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project. Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority police will be on site to ensure motorists' safety.

Another late night/early morning closing of the same roads will take place on or about May 4 when Dominion Virginia Power will remove the existing power lines. Details will be announced closer to that event.

For information about the project, visit or call 703-572-0506.
