WESTBOUND I-66 CLOSURES IN FAIRFAX COUNTY LATE THURSDAY NIGHT
Lanes will close for up to 30 minutes

FAIRFAX – All westbound lanes of Interstate 66 will close intermittently between midnight Thursday, Dec. 11 and 5 a.m. Friday, Dec. 12, for the installation of two gantries between the Fairfax County Parkway and Route 28. Each closure will last up to 30 minutes.

Message signs will be posted in advance of the work so that motorists can use alternate routes.

The closures will occur between Fairfax County Parkway and Route 28, with each lasting no more than 30 minutes.

The closures are part of the Virginia Department of Transportation’s ongoing effort to install 36 new gantries as part of the I-66 Active Traffic Management System (ATMS). The first gantry went up in mid-November on I-66 East just before Route 28.

The traffic system is scheduled to begin operating between Route 29 in Centreville and the Capital Beltway in early 2015.
