I-66 W to close overnight Thurs.

Kafia Hosh

Interstate 66 westbound at Route 267 will close from overnight Thursday through Saturday for construction of the Metro rail line to Dulles International Airport.

The closure will occur from midnight to 5 a.m.

Rail construction crews are building large concrete structures that straddle the highway between piers. These structures will support bridges to carry the new rail tracks near where the rail extension will merge with Metro's existing Orange Line.

Traffic will be detoured to westbound Route 267, then on to Route 123 south toward Tysons Corner, to a right turn on to the ramp to the Capital Beltway south toward Richmond. Drivers can then rejoin I-66 from the Beltway.

This post is unclear. Will it be closed from midnight Thursday through 5am Monday, or each night from midnight to 5am?

Each night. They wouldn't close that on weekdays during the day. Too disruptive, unless it were the week between Christmas and New Year's (especially this year with both of said holidays falling on Saturdays, such that there are two three-day weekends).

Street or road that can be used for vehicles.
