FAIRFAX – Overnight lane closures are planned on I-66 West approaching Gallows Road this Friday, September 9, through Sunday, September 11, for installation of bridge beams for the new Gallows Road South Bridge over I-66. This work is part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project. 

Gallows Road over I-66 will be reduced to a single travel lane in each direction during the overnight hours as part of this work. Two-way traffic will run on Gallows Road North.  

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

As work to install bridge beams advances, additional multiple-night lane closures and traffic stoppages will be scheduled on I-66 West and Gallows Road over I-66 in the coming weeks. Message boards on Gallows Road and I-66 will provide advance notice of lane closures and traffic stoppages.  

Gallows Road over I-66 is being reconstructed as part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project. The bridge is being lengthened, widened, raised, and shifted to the east to accommodate the new Express Lanes and provide room for future improvements along Gallows Road.
