I-66 in Manassas Area Reduced to One Travel Lane in Each Direction During Overnight Hours This Weekend, February 19-20, for Bridge Beam Installation
Two-way traffic will travel in single lane in each direction on I-66 West; Ramps from Route 234 Business (Sudley Road) to I-66 East to close nightly

FAIRFAX – Travel on 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 Saturday, February 19, and Sunday, February 20, as bridge beams are installed for a new access ramp to the future I-66 Express Lanes. Two-way traffic will run on the I-66 West side so that crews can safely install bridge beams over I-66 East. This work is part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.

The ramps from Route 234 Business North and South to I-66 East will also be closed during this period.

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

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

Details include:

Saturday, February 19, and Sunday, February 20

  • Around 10 p.m. (8:30 p.m. Sunday), I-66 West traffic will be narrowed to a single right lane approaching the Manassas Safety Rest Area and remain on the right side until the point where eastbound traffic crosses onto the westbound lanes.
