Jones Branch Connector Closed For the Weekend, Once Again

The partially open Jones Branch Connector will be completely closed this weekend — now the second weekend in a row for the closure — to facilitate some additional bridge work.

According to a press release from the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT):

  • The southbound 495 express lanes between the Jones Branch Connector off-ramp and the Jones Branch Connector on-ramp
  • The eastbound Dulles Toll Road ramp to southbound 495 express lanes
  • Eastbound and westbound lanes of the Jones Branch Connector between Jones Branch Drive and the 495 express lanes.

Like last week, VDOT says if the weather cooperates, the closure is scheduled to run from Saturday (March 9) at 5 a.m. to Monday (March 11) at 4 a.m.

The closure is to allow crews to continue working on the bridge deck, and further closures may be on the horizon.

“Following the closures this weekend, a few more weekend closures will be necessary in order to construct the new parts of the bridge,” VDOT staff said in an email. “We will send out traffic alerts for those future weekend closures once those dates are confirmed, before they’re scheduled to occur.”
