The only actual real construction on the project that is taking place is in the area of the portal west of the future Tysons Central 123 (Tysons Corner Center) Station. Some tree clearing has been done along the Dulles Connector Road adjacent to the interchange with VA I-66. Most of the rest of the construction taking place is utility relocation with the exception of the work being done in the VA-123 Chain Bridge Road VA I-495 Capitol Beltway Interchange. That work is a separate project, Virginia I-495 Capitol Beltway HOV/HOT lane project.
The best locations for taking pictures and viewing the project along VA-123 Chain Bridge Road west of the Capitol Beltway is from the WestPark Drive overpass and Tysons Corner Center parking deck E and to a lesser extent parking deck D. The east end of Leesburg Pike part of the is best viewed from the VA-123 Chain Bridge Road overpass, the garage next to SAIC and the terrace behind Ernst and Young west of the future Tysons Central 7 (Greensboro) Station.
