I-66 W to close overnight Thurs.
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.
