Route 28 in Centreville Reduced to One Lane in Each Direction During Overnight Hours Next Week, September 8-11
Ramp closures, contraflow traffic needed for continued Braddock Road/Walney Road Bridge beam installation

FAIRFAX – Route 28 in Centreville will be reduced to a single travel lane in each direction for about one mile during overnight hours Tuesday, September 8, through Friday, September 11, to accommodate continued 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 South so that crews can safely install bridge beams over the northbound lanes of Route 28.

Other closures necessary during this time include: the ramp from I-66 East to Route 28 North, the ramp from I-66 West to Route 28 North, the ramp from Route 28 South to I-66 East, and Braddock Road East to Route 28 South. Detours will be posted. Drivers should expect delays if traveling in this area.
