Lane Closures Scheduled for I-66 This Weekend With More Construction Ahead

Anyone traveling along I-66 in late evenings or early mornings should expect substantial lane closures over the weekend.

Until New Year’s Eve (Monday), I-66 from Pimmit Hills all the way to stretches of the road near Gainesville is expected to see two lanes closed in each direction between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., as well as shoulder closures, to allow for maintenance work on the road.

The same stretch of road will have two of the four lanes closed in each direction from 12-3:30 p.m. for maintenance. One express lane will also be closed: an eastbound lane from 11 a.m.-3:30 p.m. and a westbound lane from 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

Work on express lane expansions and other construction projects has slowed down over the holiday, but is scheduled to resume on Jan. 2

Closest to I-495, lane shifts and clearing are scheduled on I-66 in preparation for major construction work. According to the Virginia Department of Transportation, no significant traffic impacts are expected as a result of the lane shifts.

At the interchange with Nutley Street in Vienna, paving is being placed along the median to temporarily allow traffic to be shifted to the left.
