Important Information From VDOT
Posted on Aug 18th, 2011
Good Afternoon All,
I’m sure most of you are aware of the America’s 9/11 Foundation Tribute Ride which will pass through Northern Virginia on its way to Washington D.C. this Friday afternoon. This monumental ride has 1800+ motorcyclist stretching approximately 15 miles in length who are riding across 6 states, including Washington, D.C. The riders will reportedly enter Virginia at approximately 2p.m. on Route 15 in Leesburg and will be headed to I-66 eastbound (via Route 7 and the Toll Road). Eastbound I-66 will be closed from the Capital Beltway to Route 110 in anticipation of their arrival until approximately 4p.m.
Please assist us in making the public fully aware of the significant traffic impacts anticipated resulting from the delays and subsequent road closures.
Please view the attached WTOP article for additional information and the biker’s route list.
