Transform I-66 Outside the Beltway Project - NoVA

Published by Katie Horst

If you have seen quite a bit of CP&P product heading out the door to Fam Construction, LLC, get used to it for the next 3 to 4 years! Fam Construction was awarded the Transform I-66 Outside the Beltway project in Northern Virginia, which will transform Northern Virginia’s Interstate 66 into a multimodal corridor that moves more people, provides reliable trips, and offers new travel options.

This project is a three-entity partnership between the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), the Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT), and I-66 Express Mobility Partners. It will deliver $3.7 billion of transportation improvements to the I-66 corridor, including:

  • 22.5 miles of new express lanes alongside three regular lanes on I-66 from I-495 to University Boulevard in Gainesville
  • More reliable and faster trips on I-66 due to dynamically-tolled express lanes, available to solo drivers choosing to pay a toll and free to vehicles with three or more people
  • New and improved bus service and transit routes
  • New and expanded park and ride lots providing convenient access to the express lanes and more than 4,000 new park and ride spaces
  • Interchange improvements to enhance safety and reduce congestion, including auxiliary lanes between interchanges, where needed
  • 11 miles of new bike and pedestrian trails, including shared-use trails along I-66 that integrate with local trails, and new crossings of I-66 to improve and expand bicycle and pedestrian routes

Our participation in the Fam Construction Transform I-66 project will involve approximately $10 to $12 million in CP&P product over the next three to four years, including precast storm drain, sanitary sewer, RCP, Box Culvert, and Dominion Virginia Power dry utility products. The pipe will be manufactured by the Hanover and Jessup plants, while the precast structures will be produced out of the Ashland, Harrisonburg, Greencastle, Salem, and Martinsburg plants.
