Brief Midday Stoppages Planned on I-66 and Route 28 in Centreville Starting Next Week for About Two Months
Closures Needed for Blasting Operations for the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project

FAIRFAX – Traffic stoppages of up to 15 minutes are planned in both directions of I-66 between Route 29 in Centreville and Stringfellow Road, and in both directions of Route 28 between Braddock Road and I-66 between the hours of 11 a.m. and noon on weekdays, starting Tuesday, Oct. 1 and continuing for approximately the next two months. These closures are needed to accommodate small charge blasting operations.
 
Crews are blasting to break up rock along the outside shoulders of I-66 between Route 29 in Centreville and Route 28 where highway widening will occur for the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project. Residents and drivers in the area may hear loud noises and should expect travel delays.
 
Prior to the blasting each day, police will pace traffic on I-66 and Route 28 to a slow roll to stop traffic. The ramp from Route 29 in Centreville to I-66 East will be blocked as part of the stoppages.  
 
All work is weather dependent and will be rescheduled if inclement conditions occur.

The work is part of the
 Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project [outside.transform66.org]which is scheduled to be completed in December 2022.
