Traffic Pattern Change at Ramp from Route 28 North to I-66 East Starting on or about September 26

FAIRFAX – The current ramp from Route 28 North to I-66 East will close beginning on or about Saturday, September 26, and be replaced by a new, temporary ramp about 250 feet farther north on Route 28. As part of this traffic pattern change, travel lanes on Route 28 North and on the ramp from Route 29 (Lee Highway) South to Route 28 North will be shifted slightly. These changes are part of several traffic pattern changes happening this year in the I-66 and Route 28 Interchange area as part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.

This traffic pattern will be in place while the new northbound Route 28 thru-lanes and additional ramps for the redesigned interchange are constructed. Drivers should use caution and follow roadway signs when traveling in this area.

The new Route 28 and I-66 Interchange will improve traffic flow on I-66 and Route 28, and provide access to and from the future I-66 Express Lanes. The I-66 Outside the Beltway Express Lanes, which span from I-495 to Route 29 in Gainesville, are expected to open in December 2022.
