WASHINGTON – There will be intermittent full lane closures on the Outer Loop of the Beltway at Route 7 Leesburg Pike at Exit 47 beginning at midnight on Tuesday, Feb. 5. The closures could last up to 30 minutes at a time.

When not fully closed, one left lane will be open. In addition, there will be one Express Lane available.

Beltway closures of this kind were an everyday occurrence when construction for the Express Lanes was in full-force. Since the project’s completion in November 2012, this type of closure has been much less frequent.
