WASHINGTON – Regardless of the time of day, roadwork in the region can be a headache, but this weekend drivers are in for a big challenge on Interstate 66 and the Fairfax County Parkway.
Starting at 10 p.m. Friday and lasting through the weekend, the ramps from eastbound and westbound I-66 to the southbound Fairfax County Parkway will be closed for a paving project.
In addition, the southbound parkway will be reduced to one lane in the area.
The work is all part of the larger, $69.5 million interchange project at Fair Lakes and the Fairfax County Parkway.
The Virginia Department of Transportation will likely have detours posted.
The entire project is expected to be completed next year.
More information is available from VDOT.
