Starting at 9:30 p. m., Friday, March 10, the right eastbound lane of the Dulles Connector Road (Route 267 at mile marker 27, east of Chain Bridge Rd.) will be closed to mobilize a crane that will lift an overhead toll gantry. Full closures of up to 20 minutes each will occur between midnight and 4:00 a .m. on Saturday, March 11 for the gantry installation. The right lane will reopen by 5:00 a. m. This work was previously scheduled for March 9-10, but has been rescheduled to March 10-11 due to potential inclement weather.

To ensure the public’s safety, Virginia State Police will stop and hold eastbound traffic ahead of the gantry-lifting operation. Traffic will be released after the 20-minute operations are completed.

The gantries support electronic tolling equipment that reads the E-ZPass and E-ZPass Flex transponders, which will be required in all vehicles traveling on the future Rush Hour Toll Lanes.
