OVERNIGHT I-66 CLOSURES SCHEDULED TONIGHT, WEDNESDAY
Lanes will close for up to 30 minutes
FAIRFAX – All lanes of westbound Interstate 66 will close intermittently between midnight and 5 a.m. tonight and Wednesday, February 25 for the installation of gantries. Each closure will last up to 30 minutes.
The tonight into tomorrow closures will occur on westbound 66 between Route 7 (Exit 66) and the Capital Beltway (Exit 64). These closures were rescheduled from earlier in the month.
The Wednesday into Thursday closures will occur at Nutley Street (Exit 62). When the closures are occurring, motorists will not be able to exit from Nutley Street to westbound 66, but will still be able to exit from westbound 66 to Nutley Street.
Message signs will be posted in advance of the work so that motorists can use alternate routes.
In the event of snow, rain or high wind, work will be rescheduled for the following night.
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.
