Transforming I-66 Outside the Beltway
Work is underway to transform Northern Virginia's Interstate 66 into a multimodal corridor that moves more people, provides reliable trips and offers new travel options. The $2.3 Billion I-66 Outside the Beltway Project is a public-private partnership between the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT), and private partner, I-66 Express Mobility Partners, a consortium of Cintra, Meridiam, Ferrovial Agroman US and Allan Myers VA, Inc.
The I-66 Outside the Beltway Project will include:
22.5 miles of new express lanes alongside three regular lanes from I-495 to University Boulevard in Gainesville
Express lanes will be dynamically tolled to manage demand for the lanes and provide a reliable, faster trip – available to drivers who choose to pay a toll, and for free to vehicles with three or more people
New and improved bus service and transit routes
New and expanded park and ride lots providing convenient access to the express lanes and more than 4,000 new park and ride spaces
Interchange improvements to enhance safety and reduce congestion, including auxiliary lanes between interchanges, where needed
