FAIRFAX – The ramp from Route 50 East to I-66 East in Fairfax will be closed during overnight hours, Friday, October 23, and Saturday, Oct. 24, for bridge beam installation for the new Route 50 bridges over I-66, as part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project. Drivers should expect delays if traveling in this area and consider using alternate routes. 

Details include:

Friday, October 23, and Saturday, October 24:

  • The ramp from eastbound Route 50 to eastbound I-66 will be closed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. nightly.
