New traffic patterns & detours at I-66 and Nutley and lane closures on I-495 near the Dulles Toll Road for bridge beam installation this weekend.

With the Transform I-66 Outside the Beltway project (http://outside.transform66.org/default.asp), chances are you are going to encounter construction on your travels. Please continue to monitor VDOT for the latest updates as there are changing traffic conditions throughout the corridor, and even advertised updates can change based on the weather, progress and delays.

Most importantly: be alert, be patient, and arrive safely. Thank you!
