I-66 Eastbound Between US 50 and Route 123 Overnight Closures and Lane Shifts This Weekend (May 11-13)

FAIRFAX, Va. - Overnight lane closures are scheduled to occur on eastbound I-66 between U.S. Route 50 and Route 123 (Chain Bridge Road) this coming weekend, May 11 to 13. Crews will shift travel lanes and set up work zones for construction on the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway project.

Closures are scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. on Friday, May 11 and Saturday, May 12.  

Details include:

  • Single lane closure at 9 p.m. on eastbound I-66 near Monument Drive
  • Multi-lane closure at 10 p.m. on eastbound I-66 near U.S. Route 50
  • Closure of one of two lanes at 10 p.m. on the ramp from eastbound and westbound U.S. Route 50 to eastbound I-66

Following this weekend work, all lanes on eastbound I-66 between U.S. Route 50 and Route 123 will be shifted toward the inside median. 

Drivers are advised that once this lane shift is implemented, the “red X” signs in use between U.S. Route 50 and Route 123, which are part of VDOT’s Active Traffic Management (ATM) system, will be taken out of service. East of Route 123 the “red X” signs will remain operational until later this year. Four travel lanes will be available during peak periods throughout construction of the Transform 66 project.

All work is weather dependent, and will be rescheduled if inclement weather occurs.

The work is part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway project. The I-66 Outside the Beltway Express Lanes are expected to open in December 2022.
