FAIRFAX – Several traffic pattern changes will be implemented at the intersection of Route 28 and Braddock Road near I-66 as construction of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project continues. Starting on or about Monday, April 13, the left-turn lanes from Route 28 North to Braddock Road and the spur ramp from I-66 West to Braddock Road will permanently close. Drivers will follow signed detours until the new bridge connecting Braddock and Walney Roads and providing access to Route 28 and I-66 opens in late 2020.  

In addition, Braddock Road will temporarily close between Newton Patent Drive and Route 28 from Monday night, April 13, through Friday morning, April 17. Drivers will be temporarily routed to the Westfields Boulevard interchange to access Braddock Road and Route 28.

Details include:  

Permanent Closure of Left-Turn Lanes from Route 28 North to Braddock Road 

  • At 8 p.m. on Monday, April 13, the following will be permanently closed:
    • The two left-turn lanes from Route 28 North to Braddock Road 
    • The spur ramp from I-66 West to Braddock Road 
  • Drivers will access Braddock Road by continuing farther north and exiting to Westfields Boulevard West, then travel west to reach Braddock Road.   
  • This detour will be in place until approximately April 30, when an alternative detour will be implemented to access Braddock Road from Route 28 North. 

Temporary Closure of Braddock Road Between Newton Patent Drive and Route 28 

  • From 8 p.m. Monday, April 13, through 6 a.m. Friday, April 17, Braddock Road will be closed between Newton Patent Drive and Route 28.

Temporary and permanent traffic changes at Route 28 and Braddock Road are planned to begin on or about Monday, April 13, 2020, as part of construction of the new bridge connecting Braddock Road and Walney Road. 

These traffic changes are needed for construction of the new bridge that will connect Braddock Road and Walney Road.
