Turn from Route 28 South to Braddock Road Will Close Permanently On or About Thursday, Nov. 5

FAIRFAX – The right turn from Route 28 South to Braddock Road will permanently close to traffic beginning around 8 p.m. on Thursday, November 5. This permanent closure is part of a series of traffic changes being implemented at the I-66/Route 28 Interchange and along the Route 28 corridor as part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.

The redesigned Route 28 Interchange includes a new overpass connecting Braddock Road and Walney Road. There will not be direct access from Route 28 South to Braddock Road. Drivers will need to exit at Westfields Boulevard to reach Braddock Road.

Details include:

Permanent Closure of Right-Turn Lane from Route 28 South to Braddock Road

  • Around 8 p.m. on Thursday, November 5, the right turn from southbound Route 28 to Braddock Road will close permanently.
  • Drivers on southbound Route 28 will be directed to exit to westbound Westfields Boulevard prior to the closure to access Braddock Road. 
  • Drivers on northbound Route 28 will continue to be directed to the exit to westbound Westfields Boulevard to reach Braddock Road. New ramps from Route 28 North and I-66 West to the newly constructed Braddock Road/Walney Road overpass are scheduled to open later this month and will provide access to and from both Braddock Road and Walney Road.

The right turn from Route 28 South to Braddock Road will permanently close on Thursday, Nov. 5, 2020. Drivers on Route 28 South will be directed to use Westfields Boulevard to access Braddock Road. 

Drivers should use caution and pay attention to lane markings and roadway signs when traveling in this area.

All work is weather dependent and will be rescheduled if inclement conditions occur.

In the coming weeks, drivers should expect additional changes at the I-66/Route 28 Interchange, including new ramps from Route 28 South and Braddock Road to I-66 West, a new ramp from Braddock Road to Route 28 South, a new ramp from Route 28 North to I-66 East, and new ramps from I-66 West and Route 28 North to the new Braddock Road/Walney Road overpass. 

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.
