About the Project

This project included the rehabilitation of 6.5 miles of badly deteriorated pavement on I-66 between the Capital Beltway and Route 50 in Fairfax County.

Improvements included deep concrete patching and surface paving, as well as improvements to guardrail, overhead signs, culverts and soundwalls.

Two other improvements that were installed during the project include a red clay-colored surface coating on the shoulder (or 'X') lanes to help drivers delineate the part-time lanes from the general purpose lanes lanes, and new double-white line pavement markings to help improve the operations of the left-hand HOV lane. Read the news release for details on these new features.

Traffic Impacts

While the pavement rehabilitation portion of the project is complete, crews are completing work on overhead sign structures as well as culvert and soundwall repairs. This work will generally be limited to right-hand shoulder closures (outside of the X-lane operating hours).
