Overnight Lane Closures on I-66 West in Manassas This Weekend, January 22-23, and Next Week, January 24-27, for Overhead Bridge Work

FAIRFAX – I-66 West approaching the Manassas Safety Rest Area will be reduced to a single travel lane during the overnight hours Saturday, January 22, through Thursday, January 27, for continued bridge beam installation for a new access ramp to the future I-66 Express Lanes.

On Saturday and Sunday nights, westbound I-66 traffic will run in a single lane for about one mile behind barrier on the old general-purpose lanes so crews can safely install bridge beams over I-66 West. Monday through Thursday nights, I-66 West will be reduced to a single travel lane with periodic stoppages. This work is part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.

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

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

Details include:

Saturday, January 22, through Thursday, January 27
I-66 West from Bull Run Drive to east of Route 234 Business (Sudley Road)

  • I-66 West will be reduced to a single travel lane nightly Saturday from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m., and Sunday through Thursday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
  • On Saturday and Sunday nights, all westbound traffic will be directed into a single lane and diverted behind barrier onto the old westbound general-purpose lanes.
  • All lanes will reopen Sunday morning by 7 a.m.; and weekday mornings by 5 a.m.
