Dealing with traffic is a fact of life in Northern Virginia and there is one intersection on the Capital Beltway that is the heart of three major projects. It is the Tysons Corner interchange in McLean where I495 meets Route 123… which is the heart or nucleus of the area.
The construction of the HOT lanes, Metro Silver Line, and widening of the Capital Beltway that involves extensive bridge work, fly-overs, and an elevated rail line intersect at this one spot. Plus, we have 14-hour a day commuter traffic and 7-hours a day of rush hour!
If you want more specific details, look at this VDOT map.
They are closing the Beltway for half-hour intervals overnight on September 25th!
But please keep in mind that the future vision is clear and the Tyson’s Corner area is in full economic swing. On the Tyson’s Corner “big business” side, SAIC has just announced that it is moving its headquarters from San Diego, California to McLean, and Hilton Worldwide (formerly Hilton Hotels) just relocated here from Beverly Hills, California. So, compared to California, this traffic is going to be easy.
On the real estate side, one of the nicest new luxury condo buildings that I have ever sold a home in is literally on-sale in Tysons Corner. A spectacular 18 story tower with views in all directions including Washington D.C. Spectacular 16’th floor club room and roof top pool, underground parking, soaring ceilings, penthouse homes, and all within a one minute walk to Starbucks or a gourmet Harris Teeter.
