Overnight Lane Closures Planned on I-66 East in Dunn Loring Next Week, March 2-6, for Overhead Bridge Work

FAIRFAX – I-66 East approaching Cedar Lane in Vienna will be reduced to a single travel lane during the overnight hours next week, Wednesday, March 2, through Sunday, March 6. The nightly 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. On Wednesday through Sunday nights, eastbound I-66 traffic will run in a single lane behind barrier on the old general-purpose lanes. This work is part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.

Drivers traveling on I-66 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:

Wednesday, March 2, through Sunday, March 6
I-66 East from just west of Cedar Lane to Gallows Road

  • I-66 East will be reduced to a single travel lane nightly Wednesday and Thursday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.; Friday and Saturday from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.; and Sunday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
  • All eastbound traffic will be directed into a single lane and 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.
