Demolition of Old I-66 Bridges over Stringfellow Road to Begin During Daytime Hours on or about November 6
Stringfellow Road will be reduced to two lanes, and the Stringfellow Road ramps to I-66 East/from I-66 West will be closed November 6-8

FAIRFAX – Demolition of the old I-66 East and I-66 West bridges over Stringfellow Road will begin Saturday morning, November 6, with bridge deck demolition planned during daytime and early evening hours on the weekends of November 6-7 and 13-14. The work is part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.

Stringfellow Road under I-66 will be reduced to a single travel lane in each direction running in the southbound lanes beginning around 6 a.m. Saturday, November 6, to set up for demolition beginning around 9 a.m. Two-way traffic is planned to shift to the northbound lanes on Sunday and return to normal operations by 5 a.m. Monday, November 8. The Stringfellow Road ramps to and from I-66 East and West will also be closed during this period.

Drivers should expect delays if traveling in this area and consider using alternate routes. 

What Neighbors Should Expect:

  • Demolition of the concrete deck of the old I-66 West bridge over Stringfellow Road will occur between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Saturday, November 6, and Sunday, November 7.
  • Demolition of the old bridges involves breaking up the old concrete bridge decks using jackhammers, saw cutters, and hoe rams, followed by removal of the steel bridge beams. The bridge beams will be removed with cranes during the overnight hours.
  • The old I-66 East bridge deck over Stringfellow Road is scheduled to be demolished during the daytime and early evening hours November 13-14.
  • After demolition of the old bridge spans is complete, the old bridge abutments will be demolished. This work will occur during daytime hours as much as feasible.
  • Information about traffic impacts and demolition progress will be posted on transform66.org/stringfellow.
