[SIZE=3]Chain Bridge Road (Route 123) Left Lane Closes [/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]Week of April 20 through November 2009 [/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]FAIRFAX - The Virginia Department of Transportation, as part of the I-495 High Occupancy Toll (HOT) Lanes Project, is replacing the I-495 Capital Beltway outer loop south bridge piers at the Chain Bridge Road (Route 123) interchange. In order to safely construct the bridge piers, the left lane in each direction on Route 123 will be closed from the week of April 20 through November 2009, weather permitting. [/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]The left lane closures will be set up approximately 500 feet in each direction from the Beltway Overpass. When traveling though the work zone, motorists should expect delays during morning and evening rush hours. Route 123 will have two through traffic lanes and one merge lane in each direction. [/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]The Phase 1 left lane closures will remain in effect until November 2009, weather permitting. The left lanes will reopen to motorists for the 2009 holiday shopping season and then close again for Phase 2 in early 2010 for 18 to 24 months. During the Phase 2 left lane closure period, construction activities will include completing the I-495 south bridge construction and building the I-495 Capital Beltway inner loop north bridge piers. [/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]Please join us this Thursday night, April 16 at George Marshall High School at 6:30 p.m. for the latest construction details for Route 123, Route 7 and the Capital Beltway.[/SIZE]
