Ramp from I-66 East to Route 50 West Planned to Close Next Weekend, July 22-25, for Ramp Reconstruction

UPDATE (7/19/2022): This closure has been rescheduled to the weekend of August 5-8.

FAIRFAX – The ramp from I-66 East to Route 50 West will be closed next weekend beginning at 10 p.m. Friday, July 22, continuously through 5 a.m. Monday, July 25, to allow reconstruction of the ramp. Traffic will be detoured farther east to Route 123 (Chain Bridge Road) North, stay to the left and turn left at the traffic signal onto Route 123 North, stay right to I-66 West, then follow signs to Route 50 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 Lanes access to and from the east and to construct a new shared-use path as part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.
