Overnight Closures Ahead This Week for Jones Branch Connector

As work continues on the Jones Branch Connector project, drivers can expect nightly closures on and around the bridge this week.

The ramps from the eastbound Dulles Toll Road and the eastbound Dulles Airport Access Road to southbound I-495 are scheduled to be closed from 10 p.m.-4 a.m. from today (Monday) to Friday (June 21), according to VDOT.

VDOT said drivers can take the following detours:

  • eastbound Dulles Toll Road to southbound I-495: Eastbound Dulles Toll Road and southbound Route 123 (Exit 19A) back to the southbound I-495
  • eastbound Dulles Airport Access Road to southbound I-495: Northbound I-495 and westbound Route 193 (Exit 44) back to the southbound I-495
  • eastbound Dulles Toll Road traffic will still be able to access the southbound 495 Express Lanes

Additionally, Scotts Crossing Road closures between Jones Branch Drive and the I-495 Express Lanes will be closed during those times as well.

The closure will let workers continue work on the bridge, which is part of the $60 million project to relieve traffic along Route 123 at the I-495 interchange.

Pedestrians can expect the Jones Branch Connector sidewalk to open mid- to late summer.

The entire project is slated to finish this fall.
