FAIRFAX – Planned closures of I-66 West for installation of bridge beams for a new Route 28 South bridge over I-66 will continue during the overnight hours tonight, Thursday, August 12, and next Monday, August 16. I-66 West will close at Route 28 with drivers directed to Route 28 North, Westfields Boulevard, then Route 28 South to return to I-66 West. The Route 28 Interchange is being rebuilt as part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.

Drivers traveling on I-66 during this time should expect delays and consider using alternate routes.

Thursday, August 12, and Monday, August 16

  • I-66 West will be closed at Route 28 from 11 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. each night.
  • All westbound I-66 traffic will be directed to exit at Route 28 North, continue north to the Westfields Boulevard West exit, stay to the right to Route 28 South, then follow signs to I-66 West. Drivers traveling to Route 28 South will follow the same detour, exiting to Route 28 North to Westfields Boulevard West to Route 28 South.
  • The ramp to Braddock Road/Walney Road from I-66 West will remain open.
  • All lanes will reopen by 4:30 a.m.

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

The Route 28 Interchange is being reconstructed to 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 (Lee Highway) in Gainesville, are expected to open in December 2022.

Construction and lane closure updates are available at Transform66.org and on Twitter @VaDOTNOVA.   


All lanes of I-66 West approaching Route 28 will be closed during the overnight hours Thursday, August 12, and Monday, August 16, for installation of bridge beams for a new Route 28 South Bridge over I-66. All traffic will be detoured around the closure via Route 28 North.
