Full Weekend Closure of Ramp from Route 50 East to I-66 West Planned This Weekend, September 9-12, for Ramp Reconstruction

FAIRFAX – The ramp from Route 50 East to I-66 West is scheduled to be closed this weekend, beginning at 10 p.m. Friday, September 9, continuously through 5 a.m. Monday, September 12, for a traffic shift and permanent ramp opening. Traffic will be directed to continue farther east, stay to the left and use the left-most left turn lane to make a U-turn at the traffic signal at Waples Mill Road onto Route 50 West, then stay to the right and follow signs to I-66 West. This work is part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.

Drivers should expect delays if traveling in this area and consider using alternate routes.  All work is weather dependent and will be rescheduled if inclement conditions occur.


The I-66/Route 50 Interchange is being rebuilt to add Express Lane access to and from the east and to construct a new shared-use path as part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.   

Weekly updates will be available at Transform66.org and on Twitter @VaDOTNOVA. To receive project updates automatically by email, sign up here.
