The left-turn lane and ramp from northbound Route 29 (Lee Highway) to I-66 East in Centreville will close for approximately four months beginning on or about the early morning hours on Saturday, Jan. 9. Drivers on Route 29 North will be directed to stay to the left and continue to the intersection at Trinity Parkway/ Machen Road. At the traffic signal, drivers will use the left-most turn lane only to make a U-turn onto Route 29 South, then stay to the right and follow signs to I-66 East.
As an alternate route, drivers can continue farther north on Route 29 to Route 28 North, stay to the right and follow signs to I-66 East.
The closure is needed for Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project construction that will widen, lengthen, and raise the I-66 bridges over Route 29 to accommodate future transportation improvements at the Route 29 interchange.
Drivers should expect additional construction-related detours and traffic changes as work progresses at the Route 29/I-66 Interchange.
