WMATA: Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project Pictures 10 24 2010,
Leesburg Pike and Wiehle Avenue station


The lanes of westbound Leesburg Pike VA-7 have been shifted south and the ramps to and from southbound Chain Bridge Road VA-123 have been closed to accommodate the excavation and construction of another length of the outbound track N2 cut and cover tunnel.

Excavation of the platform area at the east end of the Tysons Central 7 (Pike Seven Plaza) station and the area east of the station has begun. Excavation of the ancillary area and traction power substation west of the station has begun.

Column foundation construction has begun at the Tysons West (Spring Hill Road) station. Column foundation construction for the elevated on either end of the station has not begun along Leesburg Pike VA-7.

I am told by others that column foundation construction has begun for the flyover in the Leesburg Pike VA-7 Dulles Toll Road VA-267 interchange, some of the column are in at various stages of completion.

The various bridges in the median of the Dulles Access Road between Leesburg Pike VA-7 and the Wiehle Avenue station are in various stages of completion.

The column that will support the canopy and mezzanine at the Wiehle Avenue station are done along with the some of the walls that will support the platform.
