Night time lane closures on I-66
© Prince William Times / Jun. 28, 2016Update: Closures for eastbound I-66 tonight, June 28, and westbound I-66 Wednesday, June 29, and Thursday, June 30, are being rescheduled to next week. New dates will be announced. The eastbound work for Wednesday and Thursday nights will continue as planned.
The Virginia Department of Transportation will conduct overnight lane closures on I-66 several nights this week between Route 15 and Route 29 in Gainesville for crews to remove beams from the old Catharpin Road overpass.
The new Catharpin Road overpass is part of the I-66 Widening Project, which will add one regular and one HOV lane in each direction from Route 29 in Gainesville to Route 15 in Haymarket. The $65 million project is scheduled for completion in August.
On eastbound I-66, single-lane closures will begin around 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 28, through Thursday, June 30.
On westbound I-66, single-lane closures will begin around 9 p.m. Wednesday, June 29, and Thursday, June 30.
Intermittent total closures of up to 20 minutes will begin around midnight each night. One lane will be reopened after each total closure. All lanes will be reopened by 5 a.m.
Motorists should expect delays and are advised to use alternate routes.
All lane closures are subject to weather.
