VIENNA, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Department of Transportation has launched work on a $2.5 million project to improve the intersection whose name is synonymous with traffic congestion.

The corner of Routes 123 and 7 in Fairfax County, otherwise known as Tysons Corner, is the site of construction work that will continue through late 2020.

The construction will rehabilitate the bridges that carry 123 over Route 7. Construction work will take place only in the overnight hours, and will require lane closures.

Route 123, also known as Chain Bridge Road, carries 30,000 vehicles a day at the intersection. Route 7, also known as Leesburg Pike, carries 80,000 vehicles daily.
