Gallows Road over I-66 reduced to two lanes during overnight hours

FAIRFAX – I-66 West approaching Gallows Road will be reduced to a single lane Friday night, March 26, for crews to pour the second half of the concrete bridge deck for the new Gallows Road Bridge over I-66. This work is part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.

In conjunction with this closure, Gallows Road over I-66 will be reduced to a single travel lane in each direction during the overnight hours Friday, March 26. Northbound Gallows Road will be closed with two-way traffic running in the southbound lanes. 

Drivers should expect delays if traveling in this area and are encouraged to use alternate routes.  

Details include:

  • I-66 West will be reduced to one travel lane approaching Gallows Road between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.
