GAINESVILLE – The Virginia Department of Transportation will conduct overnight lane closures on I-66 Sunday, July 10 and Monday, July 11 between Route 15 and Route 29 in Gainesville, weather permitting, for crews to remove beams from the old Catharpin Road overpass.
On eastbound I-66, single-lane closures will begin around 8 p.m. Sunday and Monday. Intermittent total closures up to 20 minutes will begin around midnight each night. One lane will be reopened after each total closure, with all lanes reopened by 5 a.m.
On westbound I-66, single-lane closures will begin around 9 p.m. Sunday and Monday. Intermittent total closures up to 20 minutes will begin around midnight each night. One lane will be reopened after each total closure, with all lanes reopened by 5 a.m.
Motorists should expect delays and are advised to use alternate routes.
The new Catharpin Road overpass is part of the I-66 Widening Project, which will add one regular and one HOV lane in each direction from Route 29 in Gainesville to Route 15 in Haymarket. The $65 million project is scheduled for completion later this summer.
The adjacent I-66 and Route 15 diverging-diamond interchange project is scheduled for completion in fall 2017.
