The Nutley Street Interchange has been redesigned as part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project. The new interchange:
A double roundabout was 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. The double roundabout improves safety and traffic flow on Nutley Street and reduced construction impacts for drivers and project neighbors compared to the DDI design. Learn more about this design by viewing the meeting handout (PDF, 2.2MB), presentation, and display boards.

Express lanes access to and from the west are available at new ramps at Vaden Drive, just west of the Metrorail station.
66 Express Lanes Access at Nutley Street
There is no direct access to or from the 66 Express Lanes at Nutley Street, but a new flyover ramp located between Cedar Lane and Gallows Road provides access from the eastbound I-66 general-purpose lanes. The ramp is on the right side of I-66 East and will give drivers access to the eastbound 66 Express Lanes and the 495 North and South Express Lanes.
Nutley Street Roundabout Bypass Lanes to Reach I-66 Complete
The new Nutley Street roundabout bypass lanes opened on July 29, providing additional access to I-66 without using the roundabouts. Drivers traveling from Nutley Street North to I-66 West and from Nutley Street South to I-66 East will stay to the right as they approach the roundabouts, then follow signs to bypass the roundabouts en route to ramps to access I-66. See the diagrams below for additional details.
Use the second lane from the right on northbound Nutley Street (not the ramp to I-66 East) to use the bypass lane to reach the ramp to I-66 West.
Stay to the right on southbound Nutley Street (toward the ramp to I-66 West), then bear left at the split to use the bypass lane to reach the ramp to I-66 East.
