About the Project

I-66 Eastbound Direct Access Ramp to Metro

This project, part of the I-66 Inside the Beltway improvements, will provide direct access from eastbound I-66 to the West Falls Church Metro station by constructing a new ramp connection between two existing ramps (eastbound I-66 to Route 7 and the eastbound I-66 collector-distributor road adjacent to the station's parking garage).

Currently, vehicles exit from I-66, turn right to head south on Route 7, turn left at the signalized intersection at Haycock Road, and then turn left onto Falls Church Drive. VDOT has identified operational and safety issues with this maneuver, especially during morning and evening peak periods. This direct access will save motorists bound for the Metro station time and reduce traffic on already congested Route 7 in these two intersections.

All improvements will be performed within existing VDOT right-of-way.
