About the Project

This project will connect the Washington Boulevard on-ramp to the off-ramp at the Dulles Airport Access Road, creating a one-mile stretch of auxiliary lane to improve operations and safety on westbound I-66.

A new 12-foot-wide shoulder is also being constructed, with full-strength pavement capable of carrying traffic during emergencies.

A similar project was completed in December 2011, extending the acceleration lane at the Fairfax Drive on-ramp (just west of George Mason Drive) to the deceleration lane at the Sycamore Street off-ramp, creating a continuous auxiliary lane of almost two miles between the two ramps. A new 12-foot-wide shoulder was also constructed.

A third project between Lee Highway and Glebe Road is planned but not yet fully funded for construction.

Construction Update

October 2015

As of late October 2015, asphalt paving on the project is complete. Please note that the improvements on Washington Blvd. (which includes some paving) to be completed by Arlington County will be happening shortly. Drivers can expect some spot work to continue to occur into November, but with minimal impact on traffic. VDOT thanks commuters for their continued patience and support of the project.
