After this shift is completed, the I-66 West general purpose lanes will be in their ultimate alignment for the reconstructed I-66/Route 29 Centreville Interchange as part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.

The ramp from I-66 West to Route 29 will be closed from 10 p.m. on Friday to 7 a.m. on Saturday for this work.
