WASHINGTON -- There are a slew of closures and construction projects plans coming up in the next week as part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway project.

All the closures and maintenance projects are subject to change with the weather - and we are expecting some rain and storms next week - but below are the plans for crews as it stands, from VDOT.

Crews will continue corridor-wide roadway maintenance and address issues as needed, with daily single- and multi-lane closures during daytime and overnight hours on I-66 East and West. Additional activities to include:

  • Constructing bridge foundations at I-495, Route 28, and Route 234 Business interchanges, and the Bull Run Drive overpass
  • Constructing retaining walls along I-66 and Route 28
  • Demolishing of structures
  • Small charge dynamite blasting operations at the Route 28 interchange
  • Clearing trees and brush, grading, and installing drainage throughout the corridor
  • Demolishing closed ramps at Route 123 interchange
  • Grading and installing drainage at the future park and ride lots at University Boulevard (Gainesville) and Balls Ford Road (Manassas)
  • Grading and excavating for the new E.C. Lawrence Park Access Road and temporary realignment of Braddock Road
