Overnight Lane Closures Planned on I-66 East in Dunn Loring March 4 – 9 for Overhead Bridge Work

FAIRFAX – I-66 East approaching Cedar Lane in the Dunn Loring area will be reduced to a single travel lane during the overnight hours this weekend, Friday, March 4, and Saturday, March 5, and Sunday, March 6, through Wednesday, March 9, of next week. The closures are necessary for continued installation of bridge beams for a new access ramp to the future I-66 Express Lanes along eastbound I-66. Eastbound I-66 traffic will run in a single lane behind barrier on the old general-purpose lanes during this period. This work is part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.

Drivers traveling on I-66 East these nights should expect delays and consider using alternate routes.  

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

Details include:

Friday, March 4, through Wednesday, March 9
I-66 East from west of Cedar Lane to Gallows Road

  • I-66 East will be reduced to a single travel lane nightly Friday and Saturday from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., and Sunday though Wednesday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
  • All eastbound traffic will travel in a single lane and will be diverted behind barrier onto the old eastbound general-purpose lanes each night.
  • All lanes on I-66 East will reopen by 5 a.m. weekdays, and by 6 a.m. weekends.
