What’s Happening

Crews will continue shifting travel lanes and setting concrete barriers to create safe work zones along Interstate 66. Other upcoming planned construction activities include:

  • Excavating for retaining wall construction near Jermantown Road
  • Constructing box culverts inside the Route 123 Interchange for a shared use path
  • Grading, excavating, and clearing trees and brush at the Route 28, Route 123, Route 50, and I-495 interchanges, and other work zone locations along the corridor
  • Grading, excavating, and small charge blasting for storm drain trenches at the future University Boulevard Park and Ride Lot
  • Grading and excavating for the new E.C. Lawrence Park Access Road

Relocation of underground and overhead utilities along I-66 and Route 28

The Transform 66 Outside the Beltway project will add express lanes stretching 22.5 miles from the Capital Beltway to Route 29 in Gainesville, rebuild major interchanges along the I-66 corridor, create thousands of new park and ride spaces, and expand trail options for cyclists and pedestrians.
