About the Project
This project connected 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 was also constructed, with full-strength pavement capable of carrying traffic during emergencies.
A similar project (I-66 Spot Improvements - Spot 1) 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 (I-66 Spot Improvements - Spot 3) between Lee Highway (Exit 72) and Glebe Road is planned but not yet fully funded for construction.
