The Virginia Department of Transportation says motorists can expect lane closures and delays at the intersection of Route 50 and Lee Road in Chantilly this weekend as part of VDOT’s Route 50 widening project.
From 8 p.m. Friday until noon Saturday one or two lanes will be closed in each direction on Route 50 and traffic will periodically be stopped for up to 15 minutes at a time.
In addition, the ramp from southbound Route 28 to westbound Route 50 will be closed.
VDOT officials say signs will direct motorists to use Willard Road to access westbound Route 50. No left turns will be permitted onto Route 50 from Lee Road. VDOT says crews will be removing the existing traffic signal heads, poles and span wire and installing temporary signals.
Message boards will be posted alerting motorists to use alternate routes.
