Overnight Lane Closures on I-66 West in Manassas Next Week, February 7-12, for Continued Overhead Bridge Work

FAIRFAX – I-66 West approaching the Manassas Safety Rest Area will be reduced to a single travel lane during the overnight hours next week, Monday, February 7, through Saturday, February 12, for continued overhead bridge beam installation for a new access ramp to the future I-66 Express Lanes. On Monday through Wednesday nights, the single lane of westbound I-66 traffic will run behind barrier on the old general-purpose lanes for about one mile so crews can safely install bridge beams over I-66 West. This work is part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.

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

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

Details include:

Monday, February 7, through Saturday, February 12
I-66 from Bull Run Drive to east of Route 234 Business (Sudley Road)

  • I-66 West will be reduced to a single travel lane Monday through Thursday nights from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., and Friday and Saturday nights from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m.
  • Monday through Wednesday nights the single westbound travel lane will be diverted behind barrier onto the old westbound general-purpose lanes.
  • Thursday through Saturday nights drivers should expect periodic stoppages of up to 20 minutes between midnight and 4 a.m. (5 a.m. on weekend mornings).
  • All lanes will reopen weekday mornings by 5 a.m., and weekend mornings by 7 a.m.
