WHAT’S NEXT FOR I-66
Learn more about concepts, environmental process, next steps

FAIRFAX, PRINCE WILLIAM—The public is invited to learn more about strategies being considered to transform 25 miles of I-66 from the Beltway to Haymarket into a multi-modal facility that moves traffic and people more efficiently.

During the Tier 1 process, VDOT and the Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) identified ten concepts that would increase capacity, provide multi-modal options, improve individual interchanges, and address safety and operations. In November, private sector ideas, innovative approaches, and suggestions were received from the recent Request for Information and will be shared.

Meetings in Fairfax and Prince William will explain the Record of Decision on the Tier 1 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that was issued by the Federal Highway Administration in November, and next steps as one or more improvement concepts are considered in a Tier 2 environmental study(s).

Stop by one of the meetings to view displays and learn more:
