This weekend could be a headache-inducing one for some residents of Northern Virginia, thanks to construction work happening in Falls Church and Tysons Corner.
If you live near I-66 and the Dulles Connector Road, you might have awakened this morning to the sound of massive pile drivers slamming concrete into the ground.
It's part of the building of the silver line, Metro’s new extension out to Dulles Airport. Construction crews got to work at 7 a.m. and they'll keep going in 15-minute intervals until 9 p.m.
The pile driving will continue tomorrow and next weekend.
Also, traffic on Route 7, a major arterial road in Tysons Corner, is being diverted so construction crews can build a new train station in the median.
