I-66 East approaching Stringfellow Road in Centreville will be reduced to a single travel lane during the overnight hours this Wednesday, June 15, through Friday, June 17. It’s necessary for the continued bridge-beam installation and concrete work for a ramp from the future I-66 Express Lanes to the eastbound I-66 general-purpose lanes, plus the exit to the Fairfax County Parkway.
Traffic will be directed into one lane and diverted behind a barrier onto new roadway. Drivers traveling on I-66 East during this time should expect delays and consider using alternate routes. All work is weather dependent and will be rescheduled if inclement conditions occur. This action is part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.
Weekend Closure of Route 50 Ramp to I-66 West
Ramp reconstruction work will require the ramp from Route 50 West to I-66 West to be closed continuously throughout this weekend, June 17-20. The ramp will be closed beginning Friday, June 17, at 10 p.m. and remain closed through Monday, June 20, at 5 a.m. Traffic will be detoured farther west to Route 608 (West Ox Road) South; stay to the right to Route 50 East, then follow signs to I-66 West.
The closure is needed as part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project. Drivers should expect delays if traveling in this area and consider using alternate routes. All work is weather dependent and will be rescheduled if inclement conditions occur.
The I-66/Route 50 Interchange is being rebuilt to add Express Lane access to and from the east and to construct a new, shared-use path as part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.
