Exit ramp out of Tysons goes from 2 lanes to 1
McLEAN, Va. (AP) - One of the key exit routes out of traffic-clogged Tysons Corner will be severely restricted for the next eight weeks.
The heavy traffic in Tysons Corner is always worse during the holiday shopping season due to the presence of Tysons Corner Center and other shopping destinations. And the construction planned for the exit ramp on Leesburg Pike will only exacerbate the problem.
On Tuesday night, the Virginia Department of Transportation reduced the exit ramp from eastbound Route 7 onto the southbound Capital Beltway from two lanes to one.
The lane closure is expected to last for the next eight weeks.
The closure is part of the construction project to add high-occupancy toll lanes to the Beltway in northern Virginia.
