End of the road for I-66 'red X' sign

The "red x" or green arrow that can open up an extra lane to traffic on Interstate 66 will switch off for the final time Friday night between Route 123 and the Capital Beltway. The $39 million system that has helped boost speeds outside of rush hour is being turned off less than three years after it was activated to make way for major construction of HOV and toll lanes.
