New I-66, Routes 28 and 29 Traffic Changes

The ramp from I-66 West to Route 28 North has just been replaced by a new ramp about 150 feet east of (prior to) the old exit ramp as part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project. Drivers should use caution and pay attention to lane markings and roadway signs when traveling in this area.

There’ll also be more changes in the coming weeks, including new ramps from Route 28 South and Braddock Road to I-66 West, removal of the remaining traffic signal at Route 28 South and Braddock Road, and the shifting of the northbound travel lanes of Route 28 to a new alignment using the new Route 28 bridge over I-66.

The new Route 28/I-66 Interchange will improve traffic flow on both highways and provide access to and from the future I-66 Express Lanes, expected to open in December 2022.

In addition, this Friday, Oct. 30, overnight, Route 28 North travel lanes between Route 29 and I-66 will be shifted to their new, permanent alignment. Route 28 North motorists traveling to I-66 East will temporarily access the exit ramp from the left-most lanes. As a result, drivers going from Route 29 South to Route 28 North won’t be able to access I-66 East. Instead, they’ll be directed farther east to the I-66/Route 29 Centreville Interchange.
