Preparations for the realignment of the intersection of Old Meadow Road and Route 123, near I-495 in Tysons, will begin Monday, Feb. 11, when contractors for Dominion Energy will begin utility relocation work on the south/east side of Route 123 where the realignment will take place.

The realignment is being done by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority’s Silver Line project as requested by the Virginia Department of Transportation and Fairfax County to align the Old Meadow Road entrance with the main entrance to the Capital One complex. The change is needed because of impacts caused by Silver Line construction at McLean Metrorail station.

Rail project officials rejected a controversial proposal that would have forced the long-term closing of Old Meadow after traffic studies showed impacts on traffic would be harsh.

The utility relocation work will require temporary lane closures, starting Monday and running for several weeks.
