Lane and ramp closures are scheduled to occur during overnight hours this weekend (Friday, July 13 and Saturday, July 14) on westbound I-66 between Route 7 and the I-495 interchange. Closures are needed to allow crews to shift travel lanes toward the outside shoulder to create long-term work zones for construction on the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway project.

Details include:

  • Friday, July 13:
    • Alternating left and right single lane closures on westbound I-66 between Route 7 and the I-495 interchange between 9 p.m. and 9 a.m.
    • Temporary closure of the ramps from westbound I-66 to southbound I-495 regular and express lanes from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. Travelers will be detoured to the exit for southbound Nutley Street, then take the ramp for eastbound I-66 back toward I-495.

  • Saturday, July 14:
    • Left lane closure on westbound I-66 between Route 7 and the I-495 interchange between 9 p.m. and 9 a.m.
    • Narrowing and single lane closures on the ramp from northbound I-495 to westbound I-66 with occasional 15-minute stoppages and slowdowns.

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