Overnight Lane Closures on I-66 East in Fairfax Next Week, June 6-8, for Overhead Bridge Beam Installation

FAIRFAX – I-66 East approaching Monument Drive in Fairfax will be reduced to a single travel lane during the overnight hours Monday, June 6, as bridge beams are installed to widen the overpass. Eastbound I-66 traffic will be directed into a single lane and be diverted behind barrier onto new roadway during this time. During the overnight hours Tuesday, June 7, and Wednesday, June 8, two travel lanes of eastbound I-66 approaching Monument Drive will be closed each night. This work is part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.

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