VDOT Holding Meeting on I-66, Nutley Street Interchange Redesign

meeting Wednesday in Vienna will provide information on a proposed design concept for the I-66 and Nutley Street interchange.

The proposed “dog bone” design is meant to improve traffic flow on Nutley Street and reduce construction impacts nearby, according to the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority.

Additionally, the project would connect shared-use paths with planned bicycle and pedestrian improvements around the Vienna/Fairfax-GMU Metro station, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT).

The proposed redesign is a part of a larger project to transform I-66 stretching from I-495 in Gainesville to Dunn Loring near Route 29.

VDOT’s timeline for the interchange project is:

  • spring 2019: clearing activities begin
  • summer 2019: traffic shifts on I-66 near Nutley Street
  • 2020: traffic shifts on Nutley Street and ramps and construction begins
  • December 2022: express lanes open

Clearing has already happened around the interchange and parts of I-66, according to VDOT.

The June 5 meeting runs from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at James Madison High School (2500 James Madison Drive).

The meeting is free and will be in an open-house format with brief presentations at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m., according to a recent Town of Vienna newsletter.
