Overnight Closures and Lane Shifts on I-66 East in Centreville Area This Week
Intermittent stoppages on ramp from Route 28 to I-66 East this weekend

FAIRFAX, Va. -  Overnight lane closures on eastbound I-66 between Route 29 in Centreville and Stringfellow Road are scheduled to begin tonight, Tuesday, July 31, through the weekend.  This work is needed to shift lanes toward the inside median to create work zones for construction on the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway project. 
 
Three left lanes of eastbound I-66 will be closed between Route 29 in Centreville and Stringfellow Road so that crews can remove lane markings and make long-term lane shifts. Occasional 15-minute stoppages and slowdowns along eastbound I-66 will occur. Work is scheduled for:
  • Tuesday, July 31 - 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.
  • Wednesday, August 1 - 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.
  • Saturday, August 4 - 9 p.m. to 9 a.m.
  • Sunday, August 5 - 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Additionally, the ramp from Route 28 to eastbound I-66 will be narrowed to a single lane from Saturday, August 4, at 9 p.m. to Monday, August 6, at 4 a.m., with intermittent 15-minute stoppages and slowdowns during overnight periods.
All work is weather dependent and will be rescheduled if inclement weather occurs.
 
The I-66 Outside the Beltway Express Lanes are expected to open in December 2022.
