Another giant crane will set up in Reston later this week as construction on the Reston Town Center Metro station continues.

The Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project says crews will be assembling a tower crane in the median of the Dulles International Airport Access Highway (DIAAH) between the Fairfax County Parkway overpass and the Reston Parkway overpass. That will affect lanes on both the access highway and the Dulles Toll Road.

Construction will take place Friday, April 29 through Monday, May 2.

The crane will be used for construction of the Silver Line’s future Reston Town Center Station, which is scheduled to bring Silver Line service to the spot in 2020.

Work will take place during day and night hours. All work is weather dependent and subject to change.

Here is what you need to know as the crane installation will affect traffic and access:

Friday, April 29, 10 p.m. to Monday, May 2, 5 a.m.

  • Eastbound DIAAH traffic between mile markers 4.0 and 4.9 will be diverted to the left lane of the eastbound Dulles Toll Road (DTR).

  • Eastbound DIAAH traffic to the Reston Parkway will be diverted to the Dulles Toll Road at mile marker 1.8. Signage will be in place to inform drivers.
  • Eastbound DTR traffic will be restricted to the two right lanes.
  • Eastbound DIAAH traffic will return to the DIAAH at mile marker 4.9, just prior to the Reston Parkway overpass and all lanes will be restored for eastbound DTR use.
