About the 66 Express Outside the Beltway
The 66 Express Outside the Beltway provides Northern Virginia commuters, businesses, and mass transit with a reliable option to move people, goods, and services throughout the I-66 corridor, allowing drivers to Sit Less, Live More.
Part of VDOT’s Transform 66 program, and funded by $3.7 billion in private investment, the 66 Express Lanes and the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project is a transformative 22.5-mile multi-modal mega-project featuring two new express lanes both eastbound and westbound alongside three reconstructed general-purpose lanes. The 66 Express features seamless pavement, dedicated access ramps, 11 miles of shared-use path paralleling I-66, and sufficient median space for constructing future transit infrastructure. An advanced dynamic-tolling system will monitor current volume and adjust rates in real-time, managing demand and keeping traffic moving at all times.
