These are the main highways and cities inside the Washington DC beltway. National Realty serves all these areas. The main roads in Virginia near Washington DC include:
The beltway - This is I-495 on the western side of DC. However, on the south and east side of DC, it is I-95. The I-95 part of the beltway is the primary route for New York - Florida traffic. I-95 comes from the south and joins the beltway at Springfield. Continuing straight north, that highway becomes I-395.
I-395 - This highway crosses the 14th Street Bridge over the Potomac River near Washington Reagan Airport (which is actually in Virginia). South of the beltway
I-66 - This is the main east to west route from Washington DC. Near the East Falls Church Metro, it splits into I-66 west and the Dulles Access Highway. This goes west to Vienna, Fairfax and many other cities, all the way to the mountains.
Dulles Toll Road - This starts as the Dulles Access Highway in Falls Church. At McLean and Tysons Corner, it becomes the Dulles Toll Road. Past Reston and Herndon and the airport, it enters Loudoun County and becomes the Dulles Greenway.
Farther north, one may also get to DC by taking the George Washington Parkway. This travels along the Potomac River and is sometimes a faster way to avoid the delays that may be on I-95, I-395 and I-66.
