I-66 shoulder opened overtime to ease congestion
During our noontime discussion on Monday, a reader asked this:
Arlington, Va.: I was on I-66 East yesterday (Sunday) headed back into Washington from Fairfax and to my great surprise the green arrow lane was open. Do you know why?
It was a special occasion. VDOT spokeswoman Joan Morris says the shoulder lane was opened on Sunday from about 7 p.m. until 10:15 p.m. to help ease congestion. It was just volume, she said, not an accident or a lane closure for a road project.
Normally, the shoulder lanes are open to traffic only during the peak periods on weekdays.
