The right lane of Reston Parkway at the intersection of Sunrise Valley Drive will be closed for parts of the week.

Dulles Corridor Metrorail crews will complete drill testing related to the traffic signal.

Closures will remain in effect today (April 23) through Thursday (April 26) from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and on Friday (April 27) from 9:30 a.m. to noon.

Drivers should pay attention to all signage and traffic barriers, as large, slow vehicles may exit and enter the highway at various times throughout the week.

    “Dulles Corridor Metrorail crews will complete drill testing related to the traffic signal.”

    What traffic signal? What’s wrong with the traffic signal? When did the drill-testing begin? What did it reveal? What’s incomplete?

    Why are metrorail crews working on traffic signals? Far from a metro line?

    Is this the southbound or northbound direction?

      Signal: the whole intersection will be revamped as part of the rail project. That’s why Metro related contractors are doing it. It’s southbound.

        Thank you for helping fill in some of the many missing gaps.

    • Rational Reston

      How is it far from a Metro line? it’s a block from the new stop. And if you look at the map, it’s clearly southbound.

      There are many things to complain about in Reston, this isn’t really one of them.

      • Greg

        It is not a block and it’s not clear at all what direction is presented.

        Also, the only one complaining is you.

        Moreover, you completely missed the point.

        • Rational Reston

          Yeah, I must have missed your point. But your 8 questions are complaining, but one can surmise that the post is informational about potential traffic difficulties versus the detailed intersection infrastructure information that you’d rather have.

          But it is one block (granted a long one, especially for Restonians who want a walkable area, but don’t like to walk distances) from the Reston Town Center Metro station which is at the Toll Road and Reston Parkway, and one of two major intersections close to the station.

          • Greg

            Asking relevant questions is not complaining.

            YOU are complaining.

          • Rational Reston

            Yes. I’m complaining. But it’s about your whiny posts.

            A little critical thinking on your part would have answered your own questions about which signal and direction. The world doesn’t need to be spelled out for you in little words.

          • Greg

            Your petty mindedness is tiresome, childish, boorish, and pathetic.

            And, critical thinker, try not to paint yourself into a corner next time you complain.

    When are the going to fix the suicide ramp coming off the toll road turning south onto Reston Parkway?
