Overnight Sign Installation Will Close Braddock Road at Route 28 on February 8 and the Ramp from Route 28 North to Braddock Road/Walney Road on February 9

FAIRFAX – Braddock Road is scheduled to be closed in both directions between Newton Patent Drive and Route 28 during the overnight hours Tuesday, February 8 (with Wednesday, February 9, as a backup night), for overhead sign installation. The sign installation will also require the closure of the ramp from Route 28 North to Braddock Road/Walney Road during the overnight hours of Wednesday, February 9 (with Thursday, February 10, as backup). Traffic will be detoured using Westfields Boulevard. This work is part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.

These closures will not be implemented on the same night.  

Details include:

Tuesday night, February 8 (Wednesday night, February 9, is backup)
Braddock Road East and West between Newton Patent Drive and Route 28

  • Braddock Road will be closed from midnight to 4 a.m., with no through-traffic or access to the ramps to I-66 and Route 28.
  • Drivers will be detoured to eastbound Westfields Boulevard to reach Route 28 South, I-66 West, and points on the other side of Route 28.

 Rt 28 advisory

Wednesday night, February 9 (Thursday night, February 10, is backup)
Ramp from Route 28 North to Braddock Road/Walney Road

  • The ramp from northbound Route 28 to Braddock Road/Walney Road will be closed from midnight to 4 a.m.
  • Traffic will be directed to continue farther north to the Westfields Boulevard Interchange. Drivers traveling to Braddock Road will take the exit to Westfields Boulevard West, then continue to Braddock Road. Drivers traveling to Walney Road will take the exit to Westfields Boulevard East, then turn right onto Walney Road.

 

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

Drivers should use caution and pay attention to lane markings and roadway signs when traveling in this area.

The new Route 28/I-66 Interchange will improve traffic flow on I-66 and Route 28, and provide access to and from the future I-66 Express Lanes. The I-66 Outside the Beltway Express Lanes, which span from I-495 to Route 29 (Lee Highway) in Gainesville, are scheduled to open in December 2022.
