I-66 OVERNIGHT FULL CLOSURES TUESDAY
Rolling 15-minute closures to test Active Traffic Management System

FAIRFAX – Rolling full closures of I-66 in one direction are scheduled overnight Tuesday, September 8 in order to test Active Traffic Management System gantries, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

The first total stoppage will occur at midnight Tuesday on westbound I-66 between Route 123 and Route 50. The rolling closures will then proceed further westbound to Route 29 in Centreville, at which point crews will turn around and continue the rolling closures on eastbound I-66 to the Capital Beltway. The closures will occur no later than 5 a.m. Wednesday, September 9.

Each closure will last up to 15 minutes.

The $38.6 million Active Traffic Management System is scheduled to open at the earliest Monday, September 14. The system will improve safety and incident management and include new sign gantries, shoulder and lane control signs, speed displays, incident and queue detection, and increased traffic camera coverage.
