During construction, some day and overnight lane closures along the I-495 general purpose lanes, as well as overnight lane closures along the 495 Express Lanes, may be scheduled at the bridge construction site between Route 123 and Route 7 (Leesburg Pike). There also may be some traffic impacts along Old Meadow Road, with one lane in each direction of Old Meadow Road remaining open at all times.
