Inner Loop to close at I-66 tonight

By Michael Bolden

Crews will close northbound I-495 at I-66 Friday night as part of a bridge demolition project for the Beltway high-occupancy toll lanes project.

According to the Virginia Department of Transportation, the lane closures will be phased in beginning at 9:30 p.m., with all lanes closed and detours in place by midnight. The northbound Beltway will be closed until 7 a.m. Saturday, officials said. Exits 49A and 49B will also close.

A detour will direct drivers to Exit 49C, then to I-66 West, toward Nutley Street; then to loop back onto- I-66 East toward the Beltway, and the left HOV ramp to I-495 North.

However, the Beltway closure won't be the only one affecting drivers tonight. Other scheduled closures include:
-- Three lanes of the Inner Loop at Exit 54, with some temporary full closures after midnight.
-- I-66 West at the Dulles Connector Road from 9:30 p.m. to 5 a.m.
-- Be alert for additional ramp and lane closures on the Beltway and I-395.
