Folks, I scouted the caravan meet location and route to get to 495.
In order to be out of the way, we will meet at as planned, in Tysons II, adjacent to the Macy's parking lot area. See red circle in the attached map.
For us to leave Tysons II, and to factor in the amount of cars we have, the dashed line in red in the attached map is the proposed route to 495. In this way, the group will be making a right hand turn and go along the backside of Tysons II. This will allow everyone to depart the parking lot with ease, catch up, and not have to wait on quick changing traffic lights (The left hand turn out of Tysons II is a quick light and will split the group, as well as the one just after)
From there, it is only 3 lights to 495. The first traffic light we go straight through. Then make a left at the 2nd traffic light, then another left at the next traffic light onto 495 North.
**Follow the signs for Detour 495 N** as the former one will make you go onto 495 South***
**Be flexible, if on the day, things change**
