Nutley Street Roundabout Bypass Lanes with Direct Access to I-66 Now Open

About the Project

Cedar Lane

Cedar Lane

The new Cedar Lane Bridge over I-66 includes a shared-use path and wider sidewalk, as well as a nearby connection to the new 66 Parallel Trail along I-66.

Get a closer look at what’s planned through the Transform 66 Interactive Map.

Cedar Lane Bridge Demolition and Reconstruction

The new Cedar Lane Bridge opened on December 23, 2020, after a seven-month complete closure for demolition and reconstruction. The full closure of the bridge reduced the duration of time to reconstruct the crossing and construction impacts on travelers and surrounding neighborhoods, compared to a partial closure which would have taken more than two years to complete. With the full closure, neighbors experienced fewer nights of noise from bridge demolition activities, and drivers on I-66 had fewer months of extended lane shifts for bridge pier construction. The project team was also able to maximize construction activity over Metrorail tracks during the Orange Line shutdown (May through September of 2020).

The new Cedar Lane Bridge opened in December 2020. Work continues on nearby noise wall and shared-use path. (July 20, 2022)

Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvements with the New Bridge

The new bridge includes a shared-use path on the east side and a sidewalk on the west side. Just north of I-66, there is a connection to a 10-foot-wide shared-use path that has been built parallel to I-66 from Dunn Loring to Centreville as part of the project. The 66 Parallel Trail provides cyclists and pedestrians with off-road access to Gallows Road and the Dunn Loring Metrorail to the east, and to Nutley Street and the Vienna Metrorail to the west, as well as parks, neighborhoods, and other trails.
