The Waples Mill Road Bridge over I-66 is being rebuilt to accommodate the widening of I-66. The new bridge includes a shared-use path and sidewalk, with nearby connection to the new shared-use path being built along I-66. Phased bridge construction and demolition is being done to keep the bridge open for traffic during the process. New noise walls along I-66 West in the vicinity of Waples Mill Road are also being constructed.
