The Transform 66 Project will reconfigure the Route 28 interchange to add Express Lanes access and improve traffic flow on both I-66 and Route 28. The project will remove the four sets of traffic signals on Route 28 between Westfields Boulevard and Route 29, as well as build a new overpass to reconnect Braddock Road and Walney Road.
The new design:

A new ramp from Route 28 South to I-66 East will open on or about the morning of Friday, September 25. Drivers on Route 28 South will stay to the right to access I-66 East using the new ramp, located prior to the traffic signal and two left-turn lanes that drivers currently use. The new ramp is one of several major traffic pattern changes happening this year in the I-66 and Route 28 Interchange area as part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.
Upon the opening of the new loop ramp, the current two left-turn lanes and the spur ramp from southbound Route 28 to I-66 East will be permanently closed to allow for construction of new northbound Route 28 thru-lanes and additional ramps for the redesigned interchange. The traffic signal on Route 28 at I-66 will also be removed at that time.
Drivers should use caution and follow roadway signs when traveling in this area.
The first new exit ramp and bridge for the under-construction I-66 and Route 28 Interchange opened ahead of schedule on Wednesday, July 8. Drivers on I-66 East will exit to Route 28 North using the new flyover ramp, located prior to Route 28 and the old loop ramp. The new ramp was completed as an early interim milestone for the I-66 Outside the Beltway Project, and is the first of several permanent traffic pattern changes happening this year at the I-66 and Route 28 Interchange area.
The old loop ramp has closed permanently to allow for construction of new northbound Route 28 thru-lanes and additional ramps for the redesigned interchange. Route 28 North traffic patterns have been shifted temporarily to accommodate the new traffic movement until future traffic shifts occur later in 2020. Drivers should use caution and follow roadway signs when traveling in this area.
