VDOT FIXING STRIPING ON I-66 AT ROUTE 29
Lane closures today and overnight

CENTREVILLE—Crews are working on the eastbound I-66 bridge over Route 29 to remedy temporary pavement markings that peeled from the roadway during this morning’s rush hour.

The right lane and shoulder are closed for the work until 3:30 p.m., and crews will continue tonight from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. Drivers can expect up to two lanes and a shoulder to be closed overnight.

The markings were installed on Aug. 15 as part of a temporary lane shift that will last three more weeks. The $2 million project to rehabilitate the I-66 bridges over Route 29 will be complete this fall. See VDOT’s project page for more details.

The Virginia Department of Transportation is working to determine what caused the markings to peel and apologizes to drivers for the confusion it caused.
