The Virginia Department of Transportation will close a section of Old Dominion Drive (Route 738) in McLean to through traffic early next week to replace stormwater pipes.
The agency will close Old Dominion Drive between Balls Hill Road (Route 686) and Route 123 (Dolley Madison Boulevard) from Aug. 8 at 9 a.m. through Aug. 9 at 5 p.m., weather permitting.
Those needing to reach properties along Old Dominion Drive during the closures will have access; however, traffic will not be able to go beyond the point of pipe replacement (Greyson Woods Lane) in either direction.
VDOT will detour traffic via Balls Hill Road, Lewinsville Road (Route 694) and Route 123 back to Old Dominion Drive. Drivers should follow posted detour signs.
On Wednesday, Aug. 10, weather permitting, drivers can expect one lane of alternating traffic via flagging at Old Dominion Drive and Greyson Woods Lane between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians should use caution when traveling in active work zones, be alert to new traffic patterns and limit distractions, officials said.
