About the Project

This project, part of the I-66 Inside the Beltway improvements, will provide direct access from eastbound I-66 to the West Falls Church Metro station by constructing a new ramp connection between two existing ramps (eastbound I-66 to Route 7 and the eastbound I-66 collector-distributor road adjacent to the station's parking garage.) 

Currently, vehicles on eastbound I-66 traveling to the West Falls Church Metro exit from I-66, turn right to head south on Route 7, turn left at the signalized intersection at Haycock Road, and then turn left onto Falls Church Drive. VDOT has identified operational and safety issues with this maneuver, especially during AM and PM peak periods.  

All improvements will be performed within existing VDOT right-of-way.
