FULL CLOSURES ON I-66 TONIGHT
Late night closures of up to 30 minutes each between I-495 and Route 123

VIENNA – Intermittent full closures of up to 30 minutes each will occur on eastbound Interstate 66 between Route 123 and Nutley Street and westbound I-66 between I-495 and Nutley Street late Tuesday night, October 13 into Wednesday morning, October 14, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation. The closures are needed for overhead gantry installation as part of the recently implemented I-66 Active Traffic Management System.

Tonight’s closure schedule on eastbound I-66 is as follows:

  • Two left lanes will be closed by 9 p.m. 
  • Three lanes will be closed by 10 p.m. At that time, the shoulder ‘X’ lane will be open as traffic is simultaneously detoured through the Nutley Street exit’s collector-distributor (CD) lanes
  • Between midnight and 5 a.m., all of the mainline lanes including the ‘X’ lane will be closed as traffic is detoured through the Nutley Street CD lanes. In addition, between midnight and 5 a.m., the CD lanes will be closed intermittently for up to 30 minutes at a time

Tonight’s closure schedule on westbound I-66 is as follows:

  • The right lane and shoulder ‘X’ lane will be closed at 10 p.m.
  • Between midnight and 5 a.m., all lanes including the Nutley Street CD lanes will be closed intermittently for up to 30 minutes at a time

The $38.6 million Active Traffic Management System launched September 16, including new lane control signals between Nutley Street and Route 29 in Centreville. The lane control signals between Nutley Street and I-495 are scheduled to go online later this month.
