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
