I-66 West Ramp to Monument Drive to Close for Express Lanes Construction On or About Thursday, November 3; Will Reopen as Express Lanes-Only Ramp
The ramp from I-66 West to Stringfellow Road is planned to close by mid-November
FAIRFAX – Crews will close the ramp from I-66 West to Monument Drive during the evening hours Thursday, November 3, for continued construction related to the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project. The ramp will reopen later this year as a full-time, Express Lanes-only ramp. The ramp will no longer provide access from the general-purpose lanes on I-66.
Beginning on or about Thursday, November 3
Ramp from I-66 West to Monument Drive
- The ramp will be closed beginning at 8 p.m.
- The ramp will reopen as an Express Lanes-only ramp before the end of the year, along with the eastern segment of the 66 Express Lanes from Route 28 in Centreville to I-495 (Capital Beltway).
All work is weather dependent and will be rescheduled should inclement conditions occur.
The ramp from westbound I-66 to Stringfellow Road is planned to close for continued Express Lanes construction on or about November 10. The ramps from Monument Drive and Stringfellow Road to I-66 East closed earlier this month.
Once the eastern section of the 66 Express Lanes outside the Beltway opens, motorists can choose to use the lanes by paying a toll with an E-ZPass or by using one of the other payment options available through I-66 EMP such as paying online, via mail, by calling 833-643-2867, or in person at the 66 Express Lanes Customer Service Center in Manassas. Payment options other than E-ZPass will incur administrative fees. More information can be found at Ride66Express.com.
Eligible High Occupancy Vehicles (HOVs) can travel the lanes for free with an E-ZPass Flex set to “carpool mode.” After this remaining section of 66 Express Lanes opens, vehicles will need to have three or more occupants to qualify as an HOV and travel the Express Lanes for free.
This change from HOV-2+ to HOV-3+ will apply across the entire I-66 corridor between Route 15 in Haymarket and Route 29 in Rosslyn - including I-66 Express Lanes located inside the Beltway, which operate on weekdays-only on westbound I-66 from 3-7 p.m. and on eastbound I-66 from 5:30-9:30 a.m.
