Dulles Rail project construction hotline

Construction on the Dulles Rail project has also begun. The first phase of the project is relocation of utilities along Route 7. There is a service road along Route 7 between the Dulles Toll Road and Route 123 that cyclists use. There is also a sidewalk that is used by service workers and many office employees during the day. Due to the recent construction, both the service drive and the sidewalk on the south side are completely blocked. Would VDOT allow a major road to be closed with NO access for traffic? They would provide a detour. Why don't the same rules apply to non-motorized traffic.

Dulles Transit Partners, the primary project contractor, has set up a hotline to report problems associated with the construction: 877-585-6789. If you use the route above, or any other route that is blocked by project construction, you can call the above number to report the problem. I called about the lack of a detour on the Route 7 construction and was given a report number and I'll be checking in a week or so to see what is being done to allow cyclists and pedestrians to get around the construction.
