Traffic Pattern Changes at the I-66/Route 28 Interchange
As part of the reconstruction of the I-66/Route 28 Interchange, the exit from I-66 East to Route 28 North was modified. It opened in September 2022, changing how drivers from I-66 East access Route 28 North and the Braddock Road/Walney Road exit.
The new Braddock Road/Walney Road overpass over Route 28 opened in November 2020, reconnecting Braddock Road and Walney Road and allowing limited access to and from Route 28 and I-66. Additional traffic pattern changes were added during 2021 to allow additional movements and connections. Express lanes access has also been added.
The exit from I-66 West to Route 28 North and Braddock Road/Walney Road has been relocated approximately one-half mile prior to (east of) the old exit. The relocated exit opened in March 2022. The new exit location is immediately after the I-66 bridge over Stringfellow Road. The collector-distributor lane adjacent to I-66 West at the Route 286 (Fairfax County Parkway) Interchange will become the fourth travel lane where it enters I-66 West.
