Cost: $22.55 Million
Project Dates: November 2013 to August 2015
This project consists of constructing 1.675 miles of auxiliary lanes on westbound I-66 in Falls Church, Fairfax County, VA. The construction is being pursued in the most travelled section of the I-66 Interstate Highway located very close to the Metro. The site team is closely coordinating work with WMATA representatives and in compliance with their adjacent construction manual.
A significant part of the lane closures is only permitted at night due to high traffic volume.
