People driving on the Capital Beltway overnight could run into some road closures near Tysons Corner in Virginia.

Motorists on the Capital Beltway near Chain Bridge Road can expect to run into two left lane closures starting at 10:30 tonight. Between midnight and 5 a.m., all lanes in that area will be shut down several times for up to 30 minutes. The ramps to and from Chain Bridge Road will also be closed.

The Virginia Department of Transportation says the closure will allow Dominion Virginia Power to continue its work relocating overhead power lines for the Dulles Metro rail project.
