For the next two months, crews will work to strengthen and repave the right shoulder on eastbound I-66 between the Dulles Connector Road and Fairfax Drive near Ballston. The work is scheduled to close lanes between 9:30 p.m. and 5 a.m. each night.
Extended Interstate 66 HOV hours and high morning tolls aimed at reducing the number of cars hitting a chokepoint passing the Dulles Connector Road appear to be the biggest drivers of traffic changes since tolls for solo drivers began in December.
The Dulles Connector Road eastbound at the Inner Loop of the Beltway will be closed starting around 11 p.m. Tuesday until 5 a.m. Wednesday for bridge deck work.
