In late November, a bridge on Reston Parkway over the Dulles Toll Road was damaged due to a tractor-trailer crash.
Several months after planning, repairs have finally begun repairs this week.
The crash happened on Nov. 20 of last year.
A spokeswoman for the Virginia Department of Transportation told Reston Now that the work took some time because repairs required design and steel procurement through advertisement.
‘The steel has been fabricated, delivered, and is currently being installed now,’ the spokesperson said.
Utilities underneath the bridge were first relocated to allow the bridge to be installed.
VDOT anticipates that the project will be completed by March 27.
The bridge is jointly-owned by VDOT and the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority.
