Northbound Route 1 Reduced to Two Lanes Just North of Beltway Until Friday, April 11


Northbound Route 1 travelers, whether coming from southern Fairfax County or the Capital Beltway, can expect continued delays through the remainder of the work week due to a closure of the far-right lane immediately north of the Beltway. 
 
The closure is necessary to install footings for new barrier walls for soundwalls that will protect nearby residents from highway noise. The work requires deep excavations immediately adjacent to Route 1 in the northwest quadrant of the interchange. For safety reasons, the lane closure is required.

To lessen the impact on travelers, the single-lane reduction that occurred today on Route 1’s two-lane Beltway overpass is being moved slightly north this afternoon to where Route 1 is typically three lanes. Motorists entering northbound Route 1 from the Beltway’s Inner Loop will need to merge expeditiously into the remaining two lanes, rather than entering the third lane. The lane reduction continues north for three blocks, reopening to three lanes at Franklin Street.
  
The work is scheduled to be completed on Friday, unless delayed by inclement weather.  For more information, contact
