Overnight Lane Closures, Stoppages of I-66 West at Route 50 in Fairfax Next Week, March 14-17, for Overhead Bridge Work at I-66/Route 50 Interchange

FAIRFAX – I-66 West approaching Route 50 will be reduced to a single travel lane with stoppages during the overnight hours Monday, March 14, through Thursday, March 17, for continued installation of bridge beams for a new access ramp from the future westbound I-66 Express Lanes to Route 50 West. This work is part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.  

Drivers traveling on I-66 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.
