Well, Tysons Corner Bureau Chief Kafia Hosh has investigated, and found that no one lives in that house on Luttrell Road. The Virginia Department of Transportation had to buy it, and seven others on the block, to create a new on-ramp for the new HOT lanes. Now VDOT engineers sit in there and test concrete. And ear plugs.

Here are the full details from Kafia’s investigation.
