Route 28 in Centreville Reduced to One Lane in Each Direction During Overnight Hours Next Week, August 3-6
Closures needed for Braddock Road/Walney Road Bridge beam installation
UPDATE (8/3): Due to forecasted inclement weather, this work has been rescheduled to begin Thursday, August 6, and continue the following week.
FAIRFAX - Route 28 in Centreville will be reduced to a single travel lane in each direction for about one mile during overnight hours Monday, August 3, through Thursday, August 6, to accommodate installation of beams for the new Braddock Road/Walney Road Bridge that is being constructed as part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project. Two-way traffic will run on Route 28 North so that crews can safely install bridge beams over the southbound lanes of Route 28.
Other closures necessary during this time include: the ramps from Route 28 South to I-66 East and West, the ramp from I-66 East to Route 28 North, and Braddock Road near Route 28. Detours will be posted. Drivers should expect delays if traveling in this area.
