DULLES TOLL ROAD BRIDGES REHABILITATION MEETING THURSDAY
September 10 at Herndon Middle School Cafeteria


HERNDON—Join the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to learn more about plans to rehabilitate five bridges over the Dulles Toll Road (Route 267) in Fairfax County. A public information meeting will be held Thursday, September 10 in Fairfax. In advance of the Silver Line Phase II, VDOT initiated these Simple Bridge Preventive Maintenance Projects with a primary objective of eliminating/closing the bridge deck joints above the proposed Silver Line Metro tracks.

The Monroe Street/Van Buren Street dual bridges over Route 267 are 378-ft.-long, six-single-span, steel plate girder bridges.

The Herndon-Monroe Park and Ride Ramp bridge over Route 267 is a 613-ft.-long, seven-single-span, steel plate girder bridge.

The Reston Parkway dual bridges over Route 267 are 385-ft.-long, six-simple-span, steel plate girder bridges.

The public can stop by to review and discuss plans between 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. at Herndon Middle School, 901 Locust Street, Herndon, VA 20170.  

The meeting will be an open-house format with VDOT staff on hand to discuss project information and answer questions.  

Questions or comments can be sent to Mr. Vicente Valeza, P.E. at Vicente.Valeza@vdot.virginia.gov.  Please reference “Dulles Toll Road Bridges” in the subject line.    

Contingent schedule to begin construction is May 2016.

Future construction of the Dulles Metro tracks in the median of Route 267 will limit the access to the bridge piers. Limited access and on-going Metro operations would then greatly affect costs to maintain and repair the overhead bridges. This necessitates that work be performed now.
