I-66 MULTIMODAL IMPROVEMENTS PROJECT WINS MAJOR CONSTRUCTION AWARD

Updated: Oct 8, 2018

(Washington, DC) – Fort Myer Construction and The Virginia Department of Transportation are proud that the I-66 Multimodal Improvements project has received the Excellence in Construction Award from the Associated Builders and Contractors’ (ABC’s) Metropolitan Washington and Virginia Chapters.


Associated Builders and Contractors is the construction industry’s leading national trade association representing more than 21,000 members.


For years, residents and visitors to the Commonwealth had to put up with the daily inevitable bottleneck on I-66 inside the Beltway. As a result of this year-long project, commuters have more choices for a more reliable commute.


With the work of Fort Myer Construction and other local companies, VDOT constructed the nation’s first roadway to implement dynamic tolling on all lanes during peak-period, making it possible to relieve congestion before it becomes an issue.


This project was part of a comprehensive initiative to transform the I-66 corridor, giving commuters and other travelers a variety of fast and reliable choices for traveling through the area. Before construction, I-66 Inside the Beltway was only restricted to carpool vehicles with authorized clean special fuel license plates, Dulles Airport travelers, and law enforcement. Now, with the new I-66 Inside the Beltway project completed, not only do carpoolers with an E-Zpass Flex get a more reliable commute, but solo drivers who choose to pay a toll with an E-Zpass can also use the road for the first time during peak hours.


The new I-66 inside the Beltway uses dynamic tolling on all lanes during peak-period traffic, keeping traffic moving at highway speeds by adjusting toll prices based on traffic volume.

Fort Myer is recognized for safely completing the project ahead of schedule, constructing and installing eight new electronic toll/registration gantries, shelters and high-tech sensors as well as electronic message signs necessary to convert an approximate 10-mile section of I-66 to dynamically-priced high-occupancy toll lanes. Approximately 125 electronic and static signs were installed along I-66 and the local roads approaching the highway.
