Published

on

What’s Happening

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

  • Grading, excavating, and clearing trees and brush at the Route 28, Route 123 and Route 50 interchanges and other places where work zones are set up along the corridor
  • Begin excavation for retaining walls near Jermantown Road
  • Rubblizing the shoulder along eastbound I-66 in the vicinity of Route 28
  • Continued grading and drainage work at the future University Boulevard Park and Ride Lot
  • Begin grading and excavating for the new E.C. Lawrence Park Access Road
  • Continued relocation of underground and overhead utilities along I-66

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.
