Major redesign and construction are planned for the Nutley Street Interchange as part of the Transform 66 Project. The new interchange will:
A new design alternative – a double roundabout – will be constructed at this interchange as an alternative to the diverging diamond interchange (DDI) included in the initial project design. The project team held a community meeting in Vienna in June 2019 to discuss and get feedback on the design change, which will improve safety and traffic flow on Nutley Street while reducing construction impacts for drivers and project neighbors compared to the DDI design. Learn more about this design change by viewing the meeting handout, presentation, and display boards.
Express Lanes access to and from the west will be available at new ramps that will be constructed at Vaden Drive, just west of the Metrorail station.
Drivers exiting I-66 West to Nutley Street North and South began using a new, temporary ramp Wednesday, February 17. All traffic heading to Nutley Street will now use the same ramp for northbound and southbound travel. Drivers heading to southbound Nutley Street will use a temporary traffic signal to turn left onto Nutley Street South. The old I-66 West to Nutley Street North ramp has been closed and replaced with a new ramp located slightly after (west of) the current exit.
Drivers will access northbound Nutley Street by using the new exit ramp, then staying to the right.
Drivers will access southbound Nutley Street by using the new ramp, staying to the left, then turning left at a temporary traffic signal.
The I-66 East to Nutley Street North loop ramp closed in November 2020.
