OVERNIGHT EASTBOUND I-66 CLOSURES SCHEDULED THIS WEEK
Lanes will close for up to 30 minutes Wednesday, Thursday night

FAIRFAX – All lanes of eastbound Interstate 66 will close intermittently between midnight and 5 a.m. Wednesday, February 4 and Thursday, February 5 for the installation of gantries. Each closure will last up to 30 minutes.

The Wednesday into Thursday closures will occur between Route 29 in Centreville (Exit 52) and Route 28 (Exit 53). The Thursday into Friday closures will occur between Route 123 (Exit 60) and Nutley Street (Exit 62).

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

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 traffic system is scheduled to begin operating between Route 29 in Centreville and the Capital Beltway in mid-summer 2015.
