Rosslyn Tunnel work related to Lynn Street Esplanade project


ROSSLYN – Nighttime lane closures on I-66 at the eastern end of the Rosslyn Tunnel will begin Sunday night, Sept. 15 to hang concrete panels and a debris shield along the side of the North Lynn Street overpass as part of the Lynn Street Esplanade and Custis Trail Improvements project, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

The single-lane closures will occur along eastbound I-66 between the Exit 73 ramp to northbound Route 29 (Lee Highway) and Route 110 (Exit 75), and along westbound I-66 from just past the North Lynn Street ramp (Exit 73) to the western end of the Rosslyn Tunnel.

The closures will occur on the following schedule:

  • Eastbound I-66 right lane: Sunday night, Sept. 15, Monday night, Sept. 16 and Tuesday night, Sept. 17 from 9:30 p.m. each night until 5 a.m. the following morning
  • Eastbound I-66 left lane: Wednesday night, Sept. 18 and Thursday night, Sept. 19 from 9:30 p.m. each night until 5 a.m. the following morning
  • Westbound I-66 left lane: Sunday night, Sept. 22, Monday night, Sept. 23 and Tuesday night, Sept. 24 from 10 p.m. each night until 5 a.m. the following morning.
  • Westbound I-66 right lane: Wednesday night, Sept. 25 and Thursday night, Sept. 26 from 10 p.m. each night until 5 a.m. the following morning.
