Crews continue shifting travel lanes and setting up concrete barriers to create safe work zones along Interstate 66 for the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project. Upcoming planned construction activities:

  • Lane shifts continue at the Route 29 (Centreville) Interchange, along Route 28, and between Nutley Street and I-495
  • Crews continue to remove overhead gantries and signage along I-66 between Route 28 and Route 123, with intermittent late-night traffic stoppages
  • Temporary relocation of underground utilities continues along I-66 near Jermantown Road
  • Work continues to widen the inside median between Route 123 and Blake Lane to support upcoming traffic shifts
  • Clearing of trees and brush in areas where work zones are in place
