Try living there. I live across the street from the Galleria and i work downtown dc.

fun times...

I wonder if the HOV ticket distribution will be going up.

worse thing is, people have no f'n clue what they are doing driving down 123, and the exits nearby. the one nice thing is, i won't have to worry about jackass' coming off that ramp trying to kill me cause they ain't yielding when i take a right onto tyson's blvd.

shame they had to cut all the trees down too. oh well, can't wait till its over...

I wonder if this is to blame or simply the welcome-back-from-summer-reality check.
The entire effing toll road, from 28 to 123 has been a parking lot for the last two days.
Yesterday, though, I learned my lesson and made sure to gas up on aiport property this morning... I couldn't keep my eyes off the amount of traffic on the toll road. It looked like 66 in that even the HOV lane was pointless.

Having trouble loading the map which is a 5 page pdf file as an attachment.

Pretty soon there will be a shift (this is not in regards to the shift that is currently there) in the lanes on 7 between Westwood Center Drive and Springhill.

The former service road and some of the auto dealers lots will be used to accommodate the shift.

The left turns/U turns between 123 and Springhill will be eliminated permanently.

Left turns only at signals.

They have already started on the tunnel from International Drive/123 to 7 that will require raising 7 near Koons

Also, a short stretch of the right lane will be closed between the Capital Beltway off-and on-ramps during the day.

At night, there will be numerous closures in the area near Tysons Boulevard and International Drive, because of utility work. Police will be onsite to direct traffic for motorist safety.
