I-66 in Manassas Area Reduced to One Travel Lane in Each Direction During Overnight Hours This Week, March 16 and 19, for Bridge Beam Installation
Two-way traffic will travel in single lane in each direction on I-66 West; Ramp from Route 234 Business (Sudley Road) to I-66 East to close nightly

FAIRFAX – I-66 East and West near Route 234 Business (Sudley Road) in Manassas will be reduced to a single lane in each direction for about one mile during the overnight hours Wednesday, March 16, and Saturday, March 19, for continued bridge beam installation for a new access ramp to the future I-66 Express Lanes. I-66 East will be closed with two-way traffic running on I-66 West so that crews can safely install bridge beams over the eastbound lanes. This work is part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project. 

The ramp from Route 234 Business North and South to I-66 East will also be closed both nights with detours posted.

Drivers traveling on I-66 and Route 234 Business in Manassas during this period should expect delays and consider using alternate routes. 

All work is weather dependent and will be rescheduled if inclement conditions occur.

Details include:

Wednesday, March 16, and Saturday, March 19
